Inside Bergen County’s newest emergency room

September 1, 2016

A new, fully upgraded emergency department was unveiled Thursday morning at HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley.

The department was moved from the back of the hospital to the front to serve as the “front door,” said Robert Garrett, co-CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health.

The new department has 22,240 square feet of space and is almost double the size of the old one, Garrett said.
