Nov 27, 2023 Two Community Leaders Donate $100,000 to Support RWJUH Somerset

Two community leaders have donated $100,000 to Somerset Health Care Foundation to support the growth and expansion of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) Somerset, an RWJBarnabas Health facility.

Haresh Shaba Kane, MD, CWSP, founder of Kane Wound Care in Princeton, recently donated $50,000 which will support the hospital’s cardiology services. Josh Kalafer, co-owner of Clinton Honda and Land Rover Princeton and co-owner and co-chairman of the Somerset Patriots, matched Dr. Kane’s gift with a $50,000 donation to support the hospital’s two-story vertical expansion project.

Dr. Kane recently joined the Somerset Health Care Foundation Board of Trustees. Kalafer is co-vice chair of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

“We are extremely grateful for these generous gifts which will help ensure that we continue to offer our community world-class health care in state-of-the-art facilities with the most advanced treatments and technologies,” said Patrick Delaney, Chief Administrative Officer, RWJUH Somerset. “We also thank Dr. Kane and Josh for their leadership as members of our Foundation Board of Trustees, helping to guide our fundraising efforts and garner support from our community.”

RWJUH Somerset recently completed a 5-year Cardiology Services expansion project, which included renovations to the hospital’s 2-East and 2-West Cardiac Pavilions, the relocation of its Cardiac Diagnostic Testing Department to renovated space and renovations to its Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory.

The vertical expansion above the hospital's existing Orthopedics Pavilion and Emergency Department building will house 35 fully private patient rooms, a rehabilitation gym for orthopedic patients and a 10-room Emergency Department Rapid Decision Unit. It is expected to be completed in the fall of 2024.
