In South Jersey, where health disparities are stark and health care options can be hard to access, the opening of the new, state-of-the-art $350-million Inspira Health Center in Mullica Hill was cause for celebration.

“Because of the social determinants and the problems that those folks have, they tend to get sick more,” said Inspira Health Network President and CEO John DiAngelo. “And they may not have access to the physicians that maybe some of the people further up north might have access to.”

Administrators say they plan to officially open the hospital’s doors in early December.
