Newark Beth Israel Medical Center has announced that its Emergency Services Pavilion will be named in honor of The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey upon completion of a massive and historic renovation set to begin shortly.

“Newark Beth Israel’s relationship with The Healthcare Foundation is special, and we are pleased and proud to celebrate their support in this manner,” said Darrell K. Terry, Sr., MHA, MPH, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of New Jersey.

“The future is certainly bright at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center as we prepare to embark on this $100 million expansion of our facility. With a generous new commitment of $5 million toward this project, and over $25 million of additional programmatic and capital support over the past twenty-five years, we felt it would be incredibly appropriate to have the Foundation’s name on such an important and visible aspect of the way we care for the communities we serve,” added Terry.

The new $5 million grant is the largest single commitment in the hospital’s one hundred-and-twenty-one year history and will help support the renovation of the hospital’s emergency department.

“Amy Schechner, HFNJ Chair, and I are extremely pleased and proud that the Foundation has made this commitment to Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and, by extension, to the people of Newark, who deserve access to the very best medical care available”, said Marsha Atkind, Executive Director/CEO of the Foundation. “We are confident that this major renovation of the hospital will enhance that care and contribute to the revitalization of Newark’s South Ward.”
