The Centers for Care at University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro feature single-site access to services focusing on such areas as cancer, cardiac & pulmonary care, critical care, emergency, imaging and outpatient laboratory services, maternal and newborn care, neuroscience, surgery, pediatric care and eating disorders.
