The Valley Hospital Has Moved from Ridgewood to Its New Home in Paramus

Paramus, NJ, April 14, 2024 – The Valley Hospital has officially moved from Ridgewood, New Jersey, to Paramus, New Jersey. The hospital, now located at 4 Valley Health Plaza in Paramus, is now open to provide acute and emergency care to the community.

Beginning at 7 a.m. this morning, patients admitted to the previous Ridgewood facility were individually transported by ambulance to the Paramus hospital, located only 2.5 miles away. Patients were transported by OnTime Medical Transportation and accompanied by appropriate members of Valley’s medical staff.

Limited visiting hours will resume at 6 p.m. today and return to normal visitation on Monday, April 15. To learn more, please visit

“The Valley Hospital’s move to Paramus marks an exciting new chapter for Valley. All those who come through our doors starting today will continue to be well served by Valley’s compassionate staff in this outstanding facility for generations to come,” said Audrey Meyers, Chief Executive Officer of Valley Health System. “We thank our patients for entrusting their care to Valley and our staff for all they do to serve and care for our patients, their families, and our community.”

The new hospital project was first announced in 2017, with the groundbreaking taking place on November 1, 2019. A “topping-out” ceremony where the final structural beam was put into place was held in December 2020.

“The Valley Hospital in Paramus is at the heart of a forty-acre health and wellness campus that offers our patients the opportunity to receive virtually every healthcare service they may need in one location, including inpatient care, outpatient procedures, cancer care, the ability to see many of Valley’s doctors and more,” said Robert Brenner, MD, MMM, FACHE, President of Valley Health System.

The new 370-bed, state-of-the-art hospital was built with patients, their loved ones, and Valley staff in mind. Key features of the hospital include single-patient rooms for privacy and healing inclusive of a 75-inch footwall to display key patient details and display entertainment options; single-patient rooms for neonate intensive care unit (NICU) patients; an expanded Emergency Department; an intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suite; park-like grounds and green roofs; and the latest technology.

“At Valley, we provide patient- and family-centered care, and that is exemplified in the new hospital by the provision of single-patient rooms to enhance patient privacy and provide a superior healing environment,” said Karteek Bhavsar, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Valley Health System.

The former facility, located at 223 North Van Dien Avenue in Ridgewood, will now be known as Valley Health System – Ridgewood Campus, an outpatient healthcare destination providing a variety of services designed to offer convenient care for our community. Services include full-service outpatient laboratory services; outpatient diagnostic imaging; outpatient endoscopy services; Valley’s Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Center; The Valley Breast Center; and The Valley Hospital Community Care Clinic. The Ridgewood Campus will also serve as the home of Valley’s Graduate Medical Education programs.
