PATERSON, NJ [AUGUST 12, 2009] – On Tuesday, August 11, 2009, St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center celebrated the demolition of the Johnson Building and 100 Hospital Plaza to enable the construction of our new Critical Care Building. Demolition is scheduled to begin shortly.
The Johnson Building and 100 Hospital Plaza are both rich in history. Built in 1928, the Johnson Building served as the foundation of the School of Nursing and a place where many have come for their care. 100 Hospital Plaza, constructed in 1974, has also served the community as a home to the Genetics Department, the Center for Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing, Employee Health, and many of our Residents.
The end of an era enables renewal at St. Joseph's as we proudly provide a new modern structure and environment of care, the Critical Care Building. A ground breaking ceremony will be held this Fall.
This is an exciting time for St. Joseph's. A time to celebrate!
"Thank you to all St. Joseph's employees for making the Demolition BBQ a great success!" said William A. McDonald, President & CEO, St. Joseph's Healthcare System.
