RWJBarnabas, Rutgers Cancer Institute plan $750M pavilion

RWJBarnabas Health and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey announced plans June 3 to develop a freestanding cancer pavilion in New Brunswick, N.J., a project estimated to cost $750 million.

West Orange, N.J.-based RWJBarnabas and Rutgers Cancer Institute said inpatient cancer services and outpatient services, including those for chemotherapy, will be offered at the new pavilion. The new building will also house research laboratories.

"The Cancer Pavilion will be a model for cancer care delivery on the East Coast, bringing together the three mission areas of academic medicine — research, education, and patient care — all under one roof," RWJ Barnabas Health President and CEO Barry H. Ostrowsky said in a press release.

The new pavilion will be on property adjacent to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey campus in New Brunswick. Work on the pavilion is expected to begin in the summer of 2020, and the project is estimated to take four years to complete.
