JACKSON, NJ-Meridian Health is teaming up with Lillibridge to develop a 150,000-square-foot outpatient medical facility at the intersection of Cooks Bridge and Bennett’s Mills roads in this Ocean County township. Construction is scheduled to start in the spring for Meridian Health Village, with completion slated by summer 2010. Cost of the project has not been released.

“We have a solid partnership with Meridian,” says Todd Lillibridge, chairman and CEO of the Chicago-based Lillibridge, a private healthcare real estate firm. “This is a consumer-oriented project, and it will be a real focal point for the community.”

Sal Inciardi, senior vice president-business development for Meridian Health says, “This is an exciting and unique project.” A Neptune, NJ-based company, Meridian Health, operates several hospitals and outpatient centers in Central New Jersey’s Monmouth and Ocean counties. “We did a great deal of research to plan the design,” he continues.

That research, according to Lillibridge and Inciardi, involved formal focus groups consultation with members of the local community. Besides medical services, the three-story Meridian Health Village will house food services, a community-based fitness center, medical spa and other services.

The basic layout is a Y-shaped design, “that’s both retail and residential in feel,” Lillibridge says. The three medical service areas within the Y-shape will include an internal medical/family practice area, a women’s and children’s health area and a section for medical and surgical specialists. The building will also house surgery, imaging and urgent care centers, and rehab, phlebotomy lab and patient education areas.

“The goal was to make the facility a healthy lifestyle focal point for residents, and a place to go not just when they’re ill, but when they’re well and focused on prevention,” Lillibridge says.
