Aug 17, 2011

President and CEO Barry S. Rabner will field questions from a live Internet audience about University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro, the new state-of-the-art hospital that Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS) will open in May 2012.

The Web chat is scheduled for Monday, August 22, at 7 p.m., on PHCS' UStream channel: www.ustream.tv/channel/princetonhealth.

Audience members will learn about key features of the hospital, such as:

  • How single-patient rooms can promote speedy recoveries
  • How road improvements currently under way will help area residents and emergency vehicles to more easily access the hospital
  • How design elements maximize fresh air and natural light to improve hospital stays

"Our new hospital was designed by some of the most talented architects, engineers and healthcare planners in the country, incorporating input from our physicians, nurses, staff, and the community," said Mr. Rabner. "The plans reflect the latest research on how to improve clinical outcomes through design. We reviewed 1,200 research studies to inform every aspect of the hospital."

Mr. Rabner will take audience members' questions after presenting an overview of the hospital.
