Medical Campus

University Hospital in Newark is the premier medical teaching and research facility and all New Jerseyans should take pride in this landmark hospital. It is essential that state government and the whole New Jersey legislature increase University Hospital’s annual line item budget to at least $150 million and come up with the financing mechanism to fund the $1.2 billion estimated cost of a new University Hospital campus to replace the facility that was built 43 years ago.

  • invest at least $600 million of ARPA funds into building a new campus at NJ’s only public hospital, University Hospital;
  • NJ must invest in a premier, state of the art medical campus, while increasing financial support for the hospital’s operations.
