Hackensack Meridian Health is New Jersey’s largest health network. Silverlode estimated the economic and fiscal impacts of the network’s construction activities and operations on the State of New Jersey and numerous regions and counties it serves. The study included numerous GIS maps to show the geographic dispersion of jobs, patients, and purchasing. A detailed IMPLAN analysis of capital projects by region was also conducted.
The Hackensack Meridian Health report also includes numerous sections on the non-quantifiable ways the network impacts the communities it serves. The health system uses Silverlode’s economic impact study to secure funding, including federal resources for COVID-19, and to support government affairs initiatives and community relations.
