Jersey Shore University Medical Center is preparing to break ground on the HOPE Tower Project – a $265 million dollar building development on the hospital’s east campus that will provide a new healing outpatient experience for the community.

The new ten-story building will include:
• Outpatient imaging services
• Clinical academic center
• Innovative simulation laboratory
• Nine-level parking garage building with more than 1,500 new parking spaces for patients, guests and team members.
Jersey Shore is committed to advancing medical knowledge, both as the region’s only academic university-level teaching center and as a clinical research facility, which is why HOPE Tower will serve as the home of Meridian Research Services and the system’s medical education programs.
HOPE Tower Topping Off Ceremony
On September 15 at 11:30 a.m., Jersey Shore University Medical Center held its “Topping Out” celebration for HOPE Tower – a $265 million building development on the hospital's east campus that will provide a new healing outpatient experience for the community. The ceremony celebrated the placement of the final steel beam on the roof of the ten-story HOPE Tower, scheduled to open early 2018.
HOPE Tower Groundbreaking Ceremony
While Jersey Shore’s groundbreaking ceremony on November 11, 2015, was filled with countless VIPs, including physicians, community leaders, executives and team members, the patients reminded everyone of the true meaning behind HOPE Tower. Set against a construction backdrop illustrating the vast scope of the $265 million dollar development, breast cancer survivor Sandra Doyle Ferullo and K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital patient Jonna Crocker spoke passionately and poignantly about their hopes for the new tower. Wearing a t-shirt inscribed with #hope, Jonna, age 11, who has a chronic gastrointestinal condition, said, “I am excited to have a research center to try and find a cure, and that all my needs will be in one place. But the thing I am most excited about is the name of the building. Lately it’s been a little hard to keep hope, but every time I visit HOPE Tower, I will take a picture from the tenth floor, and it will remind me that I have to keep hope. HOPE Tower will give everyone a new perspective, including me.”
