Please attribute the following statement to HPAE President Debbie White, RN
The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) did not flinch from the scope of challenges facing University Hospital in Newark and the need for critical upgrades and outright replacement of parts of the infrastructure in its study of a Master Facilities Plan. The study also clearly shows that, while historical state under-investment has occurred, the primary funding for this project must come from the State of New Jersey.
HPAE looks forward to working together with all stakeholders to designate the funds necessary to complete a project that is long overdue.
