Ground broken on new hospital in Plainsboro, NJ
Officials of University Medical Center at Princeton, NJ, have broken ground on a $441 million hospital in Plainsboro. The facility will be the centerpiece of a 160-acre campus that will also see job creation and housing. Planned for a 50-acre tract, the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro, as the new facility is called, will replace the existing acute-care hospital in downtown Princeton. The new 238-bed hospital features all private rooms and a design that takes advantage of natural light and surroundings, said Barry Rabner, president and CEO of Princeton HealthCare System. Rabner added that the facility will "redefine how care is delivered in New Jersey."
