The Danza Group Plans $30 Million Hospital-to-Senior Living Conversion

The Danza Group is seeking permission to have an independent living and assisted living community built on the site of the former Newcomb Hospital in Vineland, New Jersey, reports the Press of Atlantic City.


The developer spent $5 million to buy the property a few years ago in the hopes of attracting a medical school to the site. However, those plans have not moved forward, and the Danza Group is instead pursuing a $30 million senior living development project.

Newcomb Hospital closed in August 2004 and the bulk of the facility is vacant, although Inspira Health Network and CompleteCare Health Network are both using parts of the building.

Under a proposed project that was approved in December 2013, according to the Press of Atlantic City, the senior living development would include 69 units of assisted living in a 46,000-square-foot building and 62 units of independent living in a 60,000 square foot building.
