NHCAC administrators and elected officials will cut the ribbon at 714 31st St. in Union City on Friday at 10 a.m., officials said today.

The health center was shut down in March for renovations including a new roof, new HVAC units, new plumbing, the addition of several new exam rooms and a general refreshing of the entire premises.

North Hudson had operated a health center at that location for about 25 years as a tenant of the City of Union City before purchasing the building in 2021. It had not been updated since the 1980s.

The recent renovations cost $1.6 million, which came from grants from Hudson County CDBG funds and the federal Health Resources and Services Administration.

During the renovations, staff was temporarily reassigned to other North Hudson health centers and patients were referred to providers elsewhere in the North Hudson system.

The Union City health center has more than 18,650 patient visits per year and is one of 10 health centers operated by North Hudson, the largest Federally Qualified Health Center corporation in New Jersey.

The others are in West New York, Secaucus, Harrison, Jersey City, Passaic, Englewood, Garfield, Hackensack, as well as a second one in Union City at 2500 John F. Kennedy Blvd.
