Pascack Valley Hospital
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie got a standing ovation as he announced state approval to reopen Pascack Valley Hospital, but many of the questions were at the town hall meeting were about making the public schools better.
At the end of the day, New Jersey’s health commissioner apparently agreed with the residents of northeastern Bergen County, approving the reopening of Pascack Valley Hospital in Westwood.
The reopening of a North Jersey hospital is one step closer to reality. The state health planning board has approved Hackensack University Medical Center’s plan to reopen the old Pascack Valley Hospital as a 128-bed facility.
