HUMC Construction Progress
Today at 11am is the “Media Preview” of the new Hoboken University Medical Center Emergency Room. But thanks to Hoboken411 reader elainetyger – who submitted preview shots last Thursday (below) – I can skip this, and get the much needed rest I deserve. Thanks again to the HUMC staff for extending the invite to 411!
Continuing the ongoing Hoboken411 updates of the construction progress over at Hoboken University Medical Center…
Earlier in the week, we had some beautiful photos of the completed exterior work – now Hoboken411 reader elainetyger sent some shots of what the new ER looks like!
Oh, and the new Emergency Room is scheduled to open on Tuesday, JUNE 16th, 2009 at 4:00am.
Preview of the new Emergency Room
“Impressive! Over 30 beds, including 2 code beds instead of 1 like before (beds that are more fully equipped for people on the verge of death), a separate area for pediatric patients, another separate area for psych patients, a decontamination room that is accessible by EMS from the outside, and separate rooms for EMS workers to pick up backboards and other equipment that had to be left behind, fill out reports, use the toilet, and even shower.”
SEE PREVIOUS UPDATES AFTER THE BREAK…
Here are some shots I took of the HUMC Emergency Room. Seems like they’ll be ready to open soon!
Who’s nervous about the future of HUMC?
Some progress has been made since the last Hoboken411 update back in October. Do you think it’ll be ready to go in 2009? Have they blown through their municipal bond yet? Is this the next “shoe to drop” for Hoboken taxpayers if it fails? (cue announcer: “Stay tuned to “University Hospital” weekdays at 1pm on ABC.”)

Decided to create a thread for the lovely construction progress at Hoboken “University” Medical Center (must use quotes on “University” every time – still think it’s the most ridiculous name for a hospital that has nothing to do with any University….)
Anyway – snapped these shots at the end of September – and finally got around to uploading them.
One thing I noticed was all the “no parking” signs, which are essentially supposed to be all day – yet there are cars there every time I walk by. “Privileged Parking” again?
