Turner Selected to Construct Replacement Hospital for University Medical Center at Princeton

NEW YORK, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Turner Construction Company, the nation's largest builder of healthcare facilities, has been selected to construct a $441 million replacement hospital for University Medical Center at Princeton (UMCP) in Plainsboro Township, N.J.

The scope of work includes construction of a 269-bed replacement hospital with 10 surgical suites, full-service diagnostics, cardiac labs, radiation oncology with linear accelerators and related ancillary and support space. In the next three years, over 7.2 million pounds of structural steel will be erected to construct the 636,000 sq. ft. replacement hospital.

"As the leading healthcare builder in the nation, we are proud to have been selected by University Medical Center at Princeton to construct this new replacement hospital. This state-of-the-art facility will serve the patients of the hospital and surrounding communities for generations to come," said Michael J. Kuntz, Vice President and Regional General Manager.

The new facility will integrate evidence-based design to help facilitate the healing process. When visitors come to the facility, they will enter a main concourse that leads into the various portals known as "Centers of Care" that focus on specific clinical specialties.

For inpatient stays, the hospital will feature private canted rooms designed to prevent the spread of infections, reduce falls and increase visibility and enhance communication between patients and staff members. Designated "family zones" have been designed with visitors in mind and overnight sleeping accommodations are provided in patient rooms.
