Flemington Helps Donate $1 Million to Somerset Health Care Foundation

Flemington Car & Truck Country is pleased to announce that we, along with Steve & Suzanne Kalafer and the Somerset Patriots, made a $1 million donation to the Somerset Health Care Foundation!

Somerset Health Care Foundation DonationThis contribution went a long way towards supporting the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset and their efforts to renovate their 1-East Geriatric Unit. Updates made included:

  • Installing new floors
  • Installing new bathroom fixtures
  • Repainting the walls to make them brighter
  • Revamping the nurse’s station

As a result, a more modern & comfortable environment can be seen in this unit that’s a nationally recognized NICHE Facility (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders), an accolade given by New York University’s Rory Meyers College of Nursing. The renovated unit opened for patients on January 27.
