Holt Construction’s Robert Gerard Chairs

NJ Alliance For Action’s Healthcare for the Economy – Hospital Construction and Expansion Conference

MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J., June 1, 2018

Over 200 professionals in the A/E/C industry attended the New Jersey Alliance For Action’s Healthcare for the Economy – Hospital Construction and Expansion Conference, held at Forsgate Country Club, Monroe Township, NJ.

Healthcare Executives representing the largest healthcare systems in NJ, including RWJBarnabas Health, Hackensack Meridian Health, Atlantic Health, Jefferson Health, and Cooper University Health, discussed their current and future construction projects. Projects planned for 2018 and beyond are in excess of several billions of dollars and include new Patient Towers, Rehabilitation Hospitals, Ambulatory Care Facilities, Medical Office Buildings, expanded Emergency Departments, Behavior Health, Wellness, and Women Centers.

Robert Gerard of Holt Construction chaired the conference and also moderated a roundtable panel discussion on the Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) Hospital Efficiency Program, which has invested $199 million in 39 hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout NJ, saving $13 million annually in energy costs. The PSE&G Program provides upfront funding for hospital infrastructure projects, including new HVAC systems and LED Lighting, in order to improve energy efficiency. These projects would likely not be completed as most hospitals have limited capital resources that are primarily focused on their core mission of improving the patient care environment.
