Design for Healing
Our new state-of-the-art hospital, University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro, will be a dynamic center of medicine and technology, comfort and compassion, disease prevention and education. Your gifts to Design for Healing, our campaign for the new hospital, make this possible.
