Finally Restoring Fundamental Hospital Services to the Pascack and Northern Valley Regions

HACKENSACK, N.J., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Robert C. Garrett, president and chief executive officer of Hackensack University Medical Center, issued the following statement regarding Commissioner Mary O'Dowd's decision to approve the opening of HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley:

"Today is a great day for the people of the Pascack and Northern Valleys who have waited so long and labored so hard to reopen their community hospital. We are pleased by Commissioner O'Dowd's decision to approve the opening of this new hospital, which will extend Hackensack University Medical Center's world-class healthcare network to the Pascack and Northern Valley regions, and cut drive times in cases of emergency. Today's decision by the State validates the need for a full-service acute-care hospital in Westwood and reaffirms the community's overwhelming support for this facility.  Thanks to the State's truly fair and open process, HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley will finally bring Westwood's community hospital home and create hundreds of well-paying local jobs."

HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley will be a 128-bed, full-service, acute-care community hospital, providing the same nationally recognized quality care for which Hackensack University Medical Center is known. The hospital will feature all private patient rooms, a state-of-the-art obstetrical unit, an intensive/critical care unit, five operating rooms, one special procedure room, and a cardiac catheterization laboratory. This inpatient hospital will act as an anchor to many in-demand, outpatient services such as radiology, women's health and same-day surgery.
