CORRECTED: New Muhlenberg SED Open House Monday evening

Grand Opening of the new $2 million ER at the
Muhlenberg campus is set for Monday.
CORRECTION: The Open House for the community is from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. The earlier one is for invited guests only.

The new Satellite Emergency Department (SED) at the Muhlenberg campus will host an Open House, Monday, November 23.
Visitors will be able to tour the new facility and learn about treatment options by JFK available to Plainfield and other communities it serves.

The new ER, which occupies the first floor of the old Kenyon House at the corner of Park Avenue and Randolph Road, replaces the state-of-the-art facility in the former hospital building which JFK wants to see developed.

Though the plan to replace the former hospital with 600 new apartments has not been brought up lately, I don't think that means JFK has abandoned the idea altogether. Meanwhile, I wonder about the tax implications of the Morristown settlement with Atlantic Healthcare for our local situation -- though, again, we have not heard anything about this from the city.

Be sure to read Dottie G's post on the new SED's opening (here), where she reavches out to thank the many people who have fought in support of Muhlenberg over the years.

If you're planning on going to the open house, the lot across Park Avenue from the building is available for parking.
