ED Expansion Doubles Previous Footprint at Hackensack Meridian Old Bridge Medical Center

To address growing patient volumes, the Hackensack Meridian Old Bridge Medical Center has opened an expanded emergency department with additional treatment rooms. Serving Central New Jersey for more than 40 years, Old Bridge Medical Center brings broadened emergency services and capabilities to the community. The 24,000-square-foot expansion project more than doubles the center’s footprint.

The building’s bright interior shines through to the exterior, allowing it to illuminate the surrounding area throughout the night. The primarily glazed exterior creates a new concourse with visible sightlines to approaching patients and visitors.

Within the ED, the color palette intentionally creates a calming effect. Subtle color shifts in various locations help patients and visitors recognize the different areas within the ED. The main lobby is the focal point for arriving patients and includes a new café and waiting space linking the hospital to the adjacent medical office building. The project team included FCA and Turner Construction.
