On November 8, Skanska USA celebrated the grand opening of Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill in Mullica Hill, NJ. The new five-story, 465,000 square-foot inpatient hospital is Gloucester County’s first hospital to open in 45 years.
Skanska built Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill using the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach, Skanska’s largest IPD project to date in North America, with partners Array Architects and Leach Wallace Associates.
“Skanska’s extensive experience in healthcare, coupled with Inspira Health’s commitment to innovative delivery methods, enabled us to build an exceptional health center to meet the growing needs of Gloucester County residents. Using the IPD approach, we were able to work efficiently and collaboratively to deliver this incredible project on time for Inspira and the community.”

The new hospital holds 210 private rooms, state-of-the-art surgical suites, a modern emergency department with dedicated pediatric and senior ERs, and a maternity center. The project also includes a new central utility plant and solar field, which provides electrical power, heating/hot water and chilled water to the facility.
“Skanska has been an incredible partner throughout the process, helping to keep the project on track so we can better serve our local community for years to come.”
