Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton (RWJ Hamilton) has signed a lease with Burris Construction Company, D.B.A. Burris Post Acute Network (Burris) to allow Burris to develop a short stay private rehabilitation facility on RWJ Hamilton’s campus. Once construction is complete, the post acute rehabilitation center will be operated and managed by Genesis HealthCare.
“Our relationship with Burris will continue to grow and strengthen the future of healthcare in our region and in New Jersey,” said Anthony “Skip” Cimino, president and CEO of RWJ Hamilton. Cimino also stated, “We know from past experience that Burris can get the job done.”

The development of this new rehabilitation center will create over 150 jobs, stimulate the Hamilton economy, and provide exciting opportunities for collaboration between Genesis HealthCare and RWJ Hamilton. The facility will be designed and constructed by Burris Post Acute Network and contain 110 private suites to be constructed in two phases, and offer the latest services in post acute rehabilitation.

Burris Chairman and CEO, William G. Burris stated, “The focus is on patient comfort and convenience coupled with the most energy-efficient building.” With more than 30 years of experience, Burris maintains an outstanding history of construction and development throughout the Northeast and is no stranger to the Hamilton Area. Burris added, “We are grateful for the opportunity as provided by RWJ Hamilton and are excited to get to work.”
