New Jersey nursing home set to receive $3.6 million to expand facilities August 17, 2021 August 17, 2021 admin

New Jersey’s nursing home industry is bracing for the arrival of $3 million in state funding to expand the facilities.

The state’s Office of Nursing Home Administration (OAH) has awarded $3,062,000 in funds to the Belhaven Nursing Home and Renaissance Nursing Home in Belhaven, according to a press release from the OAH.

This is the third project awarded by OAH to build new nursing home facilities over the past two years, including a $2.5 million contract for the Belhasas Renaissance Nursing Homes in Lakewood and Belhaven.OAH officials said the funding will be used to expand and modernize the facilities in order to better meet the needs of patients and their families.

This will be the second expansion project awarded in the Belhadas Renaissance nursing home’s development over the last two years.

The $2 million contract awarded in May was for a $1.7 million project to modernize a 2,000-bed, 3-bed unit and add a second unit.

This new project is expected to be completed in 2019.

In an email, OAH spokesperson Andrea Jaffe said the state has been working with Belhaven and Renaissance nursing homes to ensure that all aspects of the projects are designed to meet the health, safety, and wellbeing of residents.

The Belhadassian Nursing Home, founded in 1881 and owned by the Jaffe family, is one of New Jerseys oldest and largest nursing homes.

It has been home to some of the state’s earliest and most skilled nurses.
