Renovations included installing new floors and bathroom fixtures, and updating the nurses’ station to create a more modern, comfortable environment for patients and their families. Nurses on the unit are specially trained in the care of older adults, earning national recognition as a NICHE Facility (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders).

“The Kalafer family’s dedication to improving health care in New Jersey has been simply extraordinary and we are extremely grateful for their long-standing support of our hospital,” said Tony Cava, president and chief executive officer, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset.

Steve Kalafer is former chairman of the Somerset Health Care Foundation Board of Trustees. He has also served on the hospital’s Board of Trustees and currently serves on the RWJBarnabas Health Board of Trustees.

He has led fundraising campaigns in support of the building of the hospital’s emergency department, the Paul R. Nardoni Oncology Pavilion, the Mary and John Obzansky Pavilion for orthopedic patients, the Frimmer Healing Gardens and the Edward and Anita Hogan Neuroscience Pavilion. Since 2009, the Flemington Car and Truck Country Family of Brands have sponsored free parking in the hospital’s parking garage for patients and their families.
