Carteret Health Care

carteret health careThe award winning Carteret Health Care Medical Center, a not-for-profit 135-bed facility, is underwent a major expansion project in 2013. This $53,000,000 expansion added 110,000 sq. ft. of space to the existing 300,000 sq. ft. hospital and greatly increases efficiency. The expansion plan created 68 replacement beds, all private rooms, with bath and shower and a Specialty Care Pavilion. The pavilion includes a replacement for the Critical Care Unit, Progressive Care Unit and Post-Partum Beds. In addition, the hospital’s Cancer Center is housed in new space creating a new multi-disciplinary Cancer Center to serve residents. The project includes inpatient dialysis services to serve a large and growing population who suffer from chronic kidney disease.
