Speaker after speaker talked about the impact the Cancer Pavilion, a state-of-the-art, free-standing facility being created by RWJBarnabas Health and the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, will have on the city of New Brunswick and the state of New Jersey.
The facility, being built in partnership with New Brunswick Development Corp., is estimated to have a project cost of $750 million. Officials said they hope to break ground next summer, the start of a four-year process to its ribbon-cutting.
The Cancer Pavilion will house key outpatient services, including those for chemotherapy and radiation therapy, as well as the major diagnostic modalities and inpatient cancer services.
