PRINCETON, N.J. – A late-summer groundbreaking is expected for a new, $441 million University Medical Center at Princeton (UMCP), the acute care hospital of Princeton HealthCare System. The replacement hospital is scheduled to open in 2011 in nearby Plainsboro, N.J. The hospital fundraising campaign recently received a major boost in the form of a $25 million donation pledge from longtime Princeton-area residents David and Patricia Atkinson. It’s the largest gift ever made to a hospital in New Jersey, according to a statement from Joe Stampe, VP of development for Princeton HealthCare System Foundation. St. Louis-based architects Hellmuth Obata & Kassabaum (HOK) and RMJM Hiller of New York are designing the new facility. UMCP, founded in 1919, will move from its 9-acre location in a Princeton residential area to a site within a 158-acre health campus in Plainsboro.
