RWJBarnabas Health and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, in partnership with the New Brunswick Development Corporation, recently broke ground on the state’s first freestanding cancer hospital, to be named the Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center in recognition of the philanthropic leadership of Jack Morris and his wife, Sheryl.

The 510,000-square-foot, 12-story facility will house inpatient, outpatient and ancillary services, as well as laboratories where research faculty can provide hands-on educational opportunities for students, and enable physician-scientists to translate scientific findings directly to patients.

In addition, the Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center will enable ease of access for imaging and other diagnostic tests, treatment and follow-up exams all in one space. It will also have the capacity to offer wellness and education resources including offerings catered specifically to the needs of cancer survivors.

The estimated project cost is $750 million, with an anticipated completion in 2024.

The project team includes architect HOK and general contractor Jingoli Construction/LF Driscoll joint venture.
