  BRICK – Construction has resumed on the $22 million new Heart & Vascular Center at Hackensack Meridian Ocean University Medical Center.

  Plans were originally unveiled in 2019, but were set back due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new facility will be 17,750 square feet and will be located above the Emergency Department. This new center will combine cardiovascular services in one convenient location to address the growing number of heart and vascular procedures performed at the medical center.

  The Heart & Vascular Center will include “three multi-purpose catheterization/vascular labs and hybrid OR that allow for diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular conditions in an advanced environment that fosters collaborative treatment planning and options for optimal patient outcomes. Three labs will be fully equipped hybrid rooms with ten dedicated prep and recovery rooms.”

  The Heart & Vascular Center is slated to be completed by spring 2023.
