The two-story facility will be approximately 46,000 square feet. The first part of it will be built on the 40-acre Giralda Farms campus – a tract of land that was once owned by the Rockefeller family and has been being developed with new office buildings by Mack-Cali for the past year. Atlantic Health and Kindred Healthcare officials plan to break ground on the new facility in the first quarter. The Madison planning board approved the plans at its Nov. 13 meeting.
Additional healthcare services will be developed on the rest of the land over the next several years.
Patients at the new facility will receive rehabilitation treatments for such conditions as stroke and brain injury, spinal cord injury, neurological disorders, orthopedic disorders, multiple trauma, amputation, and other conditions.
The new facility will offer:
“We are excited to have secured a site to build a modernized, adaptable space that truly complements our exceptional inpatient rehabilitation services, and also allows us to grow, enhance and develop services to help us to build healthier communities,” said Trish O’Keefe, president of Morristown Medical Center, a part of Atlantic Health, in a press release.
“When we acquired this last development parcel within Giralda Farms almost three years ago, we promised to undertake the highest standard of planning and development – and we’re making good on that promise by turning over its future stewardship to Atlantic Health System,” said Giorgios Vlamis, partner at Normandy Real Estate Partners, in a written statement, which helped develop the land.
