Elected officials, community leaders, and healthcare professionals formally dedicated the new Browns Mills Medical Office Building on the campus of Deborah Heart and Lung Center, in the Browns Mills section of Pemberton Township.

The new 60,000 square foot, 3-story, $21.5 million medical building is owned and operated by Landmark Healthcare Facilities, LLC of Milwaukee, and is situated on land leased from Deborah at the site of the former Elichman Pavilion on the Hospital’s campus.

The first floor of the spacious building includes: Central Jersey Urgent Care; Garden State Diagnostic Imaging; Georgies Outpatient Pharmacy; and Deborah’s Sleep Medicine Center.

The second floor features: Wellness Suite 360—a Family Medicine Practice; Deborah Physical, Occupational, and Balance Therapy — with services provided by Ivy Rehab; Deborah Pulmonary Rehab and Cardiac Rehab; and flex-time professional medical office space that at present includes Garden State Bariatrics, and Ocean County Foot and Ankle Surgical Associates.

The third floor is to be used for a planned future Ambulatory Surgical Center.

“We are excited that the building is finally open,” said Landmark Executive Chairman Joe Checota. “We spent considerable time in analyzing the market prior to starting construction, and we are certain that the variety of medical services in this building will be of great benefit to the community. There is a lack of primary care physicians in town, no urgent care center, and residents have to drive quite some distance for an x-ray. We at Landmark are thrilled to be part of bringing vital new medical services to this community.”

Deborah President and CEO Joseph Chirichella agreed. “This new medical office building is an excellent addition to our campus. The services provided are clearly needed in the community. For Deborah, the enhanced space for our rehab services, including Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab, is tremendous. As well, we are excited to bring Physical and Occupational Therapy to town.”

Both Checota and Chirichella agreed. “It has been a great business relationship working to bring this project to completion. The new medical office building is a win-win-win for all.”
