Helena Theurer Pavilion Opens

The Helena Theurer Pavilion, New Jersey's first smart surgical and intensive care tower, is now open. Check out the photo gallery and video tour below of the new pavilion.


The 9-story tower is complete and welcomed its first patients at the end of 2022. This 530,000-square-foot facility brings the following to Hackensack University Medical Center's campus:

  • 24 operating rooms
  • 72 post-anesthesia care unit beds
  • 50 Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds
  • 175 medical/surgical beds including a Musculoskeletal Institute & step-down intermediate care rooms

The Helena Theurer Pavilion design was modified during the pandemic so that with just the flip of a switch, the entire Pavilion can be converted to a negative-pressure facility, further protecting patients from airborne infectious illnesses.

A variety of procedures are being performed there, including:

  • Bariatric
  • Cardiothoracic
  • Colorectal
  • General surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedics & Spine
  • Robotics
  • Organ Transplantation
  • Urology

The new operating rooms are equipped with the following features:

  • Intraoperative MRI capabilities allow for increased surgical innovation.
  • 6 advanced da Vinci robotic surgical systems, including one single port system.
  • 4 orthopedic robots for joint replacement procedures.
  • Large monitors in each Operating Room make it easier for surgeons to see patient images.
  • Live streaming capability in all Operating Rooms, promoting education and communication between surgeons.
  • Pathology lab located near OR for improved collaboration and time-sensitive care.
