SOMERVILLE, NJ-Officials of the Somerset Medical Center have broken ground for the largest expansion in the institution’s history, a project that will cost an estimated $100 million and take up to four years to complete. The expansion’s economic impact will be in the vicinity of 1,200 new jobs, including 750 construction jobs, officials say.

The various components of the project include a two-story addition housing seven new operating rooms and a 40,000-sf emergency department that officials say could handle upwards of 60,000 patients annually. The new wing is expected to be ready by late next year.

Also slated are a significantly-expanded parking capacity, including a five-story parking garage that will be ready in about a year. Work is also underway on a two-level expansion to an existing parking facility, which is expected to be finished by early fall of this year.
