Welcome to Valley’s Next Chapter

On April 14th, The Valley Hospital officially opened its doors in Paramus and welcomed its first patients, marking the beginning of a new era in healthcare for our entire region.

“The Valley Hospital, now located in Paramus, is a critical resource that will revolutionize the way we provide care in Bergen County and beyond,” said Audrey Meyers, Valley Health System Chief Executive Officer. “We have been looking forward to this exciting and historic day for many years, and we’re honored to begin caring for our community in our new home in Paramus.”

The Valley Health System community was joined by Governor Phil Murphy, state and local leaders, and generous members of our donor community for a ribbon-cutting celebration on March 22nd to officially mark the momentous occasion.

"This will become not just one of the premier hospitals in the state or the Northeast, but in the United States of America,” said NJ Governor Phil Murphy.

With 370 private patient rooms, the latest medical innovations, and a flexible design that will allow Valley to adapt to future healthcare needs, The Valley Hospital will serve as our region’s premier healthcare destination for generations to come.

Built with patient safety and comfort in mind, the new hospital brings together cutting-edge technology and world-class care. In addition, Valley believes that the support of families and caregivers contributes to healing, and the new facility is designed with space to accommodate a higher level of patient family engagement than ever before.

Sustainability has remained a focus for Valley, and the hospital was built in accordance with best practices for energy efficiency, space utilization, water consumption and the use of natural light, with anticipated Gold level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certification. More than 30% of the new hospital setting is dedicated to green space, with beautiful gardens, lawns and walking paths for our patients, families, and visitors to enjoy.

The new facility is enriched by the support and commitment of our generous donor community, who saw the value of this important project and did not hesitate to offer their philanthropic support to make it a reality.

Led by co-chairs Vince Forlenza, Carol Gillespie and Dr. Michael Ietta, the Serve. Care. Transform. campaign has raised more than $125 million so far, with nearly a year left to go in the campaign. In recognition of the generous contributions of our donors, many of their names are memorialized throughout the new hospital.
