“Safeguarding Assets at the Jersey City Medical Center”

The devastating impacts of Superstorm Sandy in 2012 severely impacted infrastructure across New York and New Jersey, leaving many critical structures vulnerable to future disasters. Among the facilities grappling with the aftermath was Jersey City Medical Center, a vital healthcare institution on a 15-acre campus overlooking New York Harbor.

Recognizing the urgent need to fortify the medical center against future disaster risk, a transformative project was initiated to enhance flood protection through a micro-resiliency strategy, leveraging $36 million in funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
