Icilda Gibbons of Camden became the first patient of LourdesCare at Cherry Hill, the new 54,000 square-foot outpatient center of Lourdes Health System located at the corner of Brace Road and Route 70.

Lourdes President and CEO, Alexander J. Hatala, as well as physicians and staff were present to welcome Gibbons, an orthopedic patient, to the new facility, which is poised to become a busy location for southern New Jersey residents, offering a gamut of health and wellness.

LourdesCare at Cherry Hill was designed as a convenient, all-in-one location for expert medical care, support services and wellness programs and classes to help patients maintain their health.

After two years of planning and construction, the long-awaited outpatient center opened its doors in March.
