About the Project

Healthcare today is changing rapidly. With the opening of a state-of-the-art hospital on a brand-new campus in Paramus on April 14, 2024, Valley will be well-suited to adapt to these changes and meet the healthcare needs of the northern New Jersey community for many years to come.

The Valley Hospital in Paramus will provide an even better experience for our patients and their families. 370 single-patient rooms, for example, will enhance patient privacy, safety, and comfort.  A flexible facility design, with such features as universally sized operating and procedure rooms, will enable the hospital to adapt to changing needs and medical technology. And our new location and larger campus will allow us to grow our community outreach, empowering and inspiring people to live healthier lives. 

New Valley Hospital Site Plan

The Valley Hospital in Paramus will reside on Winters Avenue in Paramus, just 2.5 miles from Valley's current campus on North Van Dien Avenue in Ridgewood.

Once built, the hospital will be the centerpiece of a healthcare campus that unites acute inpatient care with Valley's wide range of outpatient services. 

The facility will be across the street from The Robert & Audrey Luckow Pavilion, Valley's same-day surgery and comprehensive cancer center.

It will also be near Valley's medical office complex at 140 E. Ridgewood Ave., home to The Valley Hospital Fertility Center, Maternal-Fetal Medicine services, the Center for Family Education, the Kireker Center for Child Development, and other outpatient services. 

Visitors to The Valley Hospital in Paramus will also enjoy convenient access to the Fashion Center and Paramus Park Mall.

The Valley Hospital in Paramus will be a modern healthcare facility on a state-of-the-art campus that incorporates best practices in healthcare facility design. Plans call for an approximately 910,000-square-foot facility that will range in height from three to seven stories.

The Valley Hospital in Paramus will be in full compliance with the zoning ordinances already established by Paramus.

The hospital will be planned, constructed, operated and maintained using “green” or environmentally friendly principles and processes, with 20 percent of the site dedicated to open, green space. The facility will incorporate green roofs, which involves growing plants on the facility’s rooftops. Green roofs have numerous benefits, including reducing storm water runoff, improving energy efficiency, and improving the overall look of the hospital for patients and neighbors.
