– New Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center Will Offer Integrated, World-Class Cancer Treatment Advances
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (April 27, 2016) – The Rockefeller Group, a leading global real estate owner, developer and investment manager, today announced that it will develop a 130,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art cancer treatment facility at the Green at Florham Park, a 268-acre, master-planned development that is home to the New York Jets and BASF’s North American Headquarters. The Rockefeller Group expects to break ground in summer 2016 on the facility that it is developing on behalf of a partnership between Summit Medical Group and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, which recently signed a long-term lease at the property.
“Our goal is to transform how healthcare and cancer treatment is delivered to New Jersey, and the new Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center will give us the ability to do that,” said Jeffrey Le Benger, M.D., FACS, chairman and chief executive officer of Summit Medical Group. “Given the Rockefeller Group’s stellar track record and vision for bringing highly innovative projects to market, we are confident that our new cancer center will make a lasting impact on patient-centered cancer care in the tri-state region.”
Summit Medical Group, which also occupies a separate, 100,000-square-foot medical office building at the Green at Florham Park, is New Jersey’s largest multispecialty physician group, with more than 600 practitioners in 67-plus locations throughout central and northern New Jersey. Its Diamond Hill campus in Berkeley Heights is home to its NAPBC-accredited Breast Care Center, one of only two centers in New Jersey designated a National Consortium of Breast Centers Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence. Summit Medical Group physicians are consistently ranked as top doctors in local, state and regional surveys.
Through its partnership with Houston-based MD Anderson, Summit Medical Group will provide the innovative cancer care and prevention services that have made MD Anderson so widely respected. Since its inception in 1941, nearly 1 million patients have sought the care of MD Anderson, and for the past 25 years U.S. News and World Report has ranked it as one of the top two cancer treatment centers in the United States.
“The Green at Florham Park is the ideal location for this world-renowned facility, and we’re excited to bring such a well-respected healthcare provider to Northern New Jersey,” said Clark Machemer, senior vice president and regional development officer for the Rockefeller Group’s New Jersey office. “Our concept for the Green at Florham Park has evolved over time, where the real innovation has stemmed from not just recognizing, but responding to community needs and trends. The overall Rockefeller Group vision, to create long-term economic and civic value for the community, could not be more evident than in a project like this. Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center’s decision to partner with us at this site is a significant benefit to the entire New Jersey community.”
In addition to the Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Rockefeller Group recently broke ground on AVE Florham Park, a flexible-stay community that will feature 256 corporate suites. Also situated in the Green at Florham Park, LodgeWorks will be developing ARCHER Hotel Florham Park, one of Morris County’s only new-build hotel projects in recent years.
