February 21, 2022

Members of the leadership team from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey recently toured Valley’s new hospital now under construction in Paramus. The hospital is expected to open in December 2023.

When complete, the new acute-care, 372-bed hospital, will be the centerpiece of comprehensive healthcare campus that will also include a medical office building, and the Luckow Pavilion, Valley’s comprehensive cancer and same-day surgery center. The new hospital has been designed with the needs of patients and families as the top priority, featuring single-patient rooms, and a vastly expanded Emergency Department, and will incorporate the latest advances in healthcare while retaining Valley’s renowned personal touch and emphasis on compassionate care.
