|Kennedy Health Care Center - Expanding to Better Serve the Community|
|Thursday, August 19, 2010|
Ground was broken in October 2009 for a 60-bed sub-acute addition at the Kennedy Health Care Center, a long-term care facility, located at 535 Egg Harbor Road in Sewell.
With the autumn 2010 completion of this $12.5 million addition, the Kennedy Health Care Center – which opened in 1986 -- will expand from 130 to 190 beds. The existing 19-bed sub-acute unit, which opened in 1999, will transition to long-term care beds. The planned two-story, 44,000-square-foot sub-acute addition will offer modern, yet homey hotel-like amenities for patients and visitors alike. It will provide a full range of in-patient rehabilitative services with a special focus on patients requiring orthopedic and cardiac follow-up.
