They did an exhaustive search and found a 160-acre parcel that became available, adjacent to a major state highway in Plainsboro. Princeton Medical Center bought the property and built a new hospital that, today, is about three-quarters of a million square feet in size. Princeton Medical Center merged with Penn Medicine, which is part of the University of Pennsylvania Medical system. This brings to Plainsboro all of the efficiencies and expertise of the entire Penn Medicine Network. In addition, as part of the healthcare campus, they built a 200-bed skilled nursing facility for acute care patients. There is a childcare center under construction now and another parcel has 260 apartments and 45 townhomes – an adult lifestyle, age-restricted facility, designed for people to age in place. There’s even a memory care facility that’s approved, and soon will be under construction; so you never have to leave Plainsboro for healthcare, at any age. Summing up Plainsboro’s best attributes, Mayor Cantu adds, “We are proud of our 100 years. I believe Plainsboro Township is a very well-planned community with an incredible education system and great healthcare. And we are proud to be a town that’s totally committed to sustainability and open space initiatives.” PREFERRED VENDORS n Princeton Hospital at Plainsboro Penn Medicine Princeton Health is celebrating 100 years of caring.
