Virtua Scraps Plans for New $1B South Jersey Hospital Complex, Will Pursue Major Renovations at Two Existing Medical Centers

Virtua Health has scrapped plans to build a new hospital in Westampton and instead unveiled a multi-year “transformation” project that will result in major renovations and enhanced services for two of its South Jersey medical centers. 

Those two hospitals are Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden and Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly. A Virtua spokesman said the health system is still finalizing its plans and projections, but the investment will be “significant” at each campus.

Virtua acquired Our Lady of Lourdes and Lourdes Medical Center in Willingboro from Lourdes Health System two years ago.

Several years prior to that deal, Virtua had embarked on an ambitious plan to create a $1 billion health care campus in Westampton. The Burlington County project was planned along 100 acres of property it acquired between Route 541 and Route 630. It was to include a more than $500 million replacement hospital for the aging Virtua Memorial Hospital.

Virtua is now adjusting its plans in a big way.  “The health systems that thrive are the ones that adapt to the dynamic shifts occurring around us while adhering to their core values and mission,” said Dennis W. Pullin, Virtua’s CEO.
