EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – Officials in East Brunswick got the opportunity to formally welcome RWJ Barnabas Health Medical Center to town.
The medical center held an official ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new Children’s Specialized Hospital recently.
Occupying what used to be the old K-Mart building, 22,000 square feet of space is dedicated to specialized pediatric care.
“On behalf of the Township of East Brunswick and our Township Council – the town welcomes you here and wishes you the utmost success,” Mayor Brad Cohen said.
The medical center will be home to the best clinicians in the state, the hospital said.
“Our mission is to make the lives of the people in this County better,” said Mark Manigan, President & CEO of RWJ Barnabas Health said. “We are providing specialized care so that ideally no one has to leave their community to take care of their kids.”
This state-of-the-art location is also looking to expand soon, to include Rutgers Cancer Institute, Women’s Health Services, and other system partners.
“We are providing accessible, world-class services to children who are facing unique health challenges,” Dr. Michael McDonald, President & CEO of Children’s Specialized Hospital said.
Apart from developing the Route. 18 corridor, Cohen and East Brunswick officials have worked at making the location a “medical corridor.”
