Groundbreaking For New Cancer Center At Carteret General Hospital

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday to mark the start of a multi-million dollar expansion at Carteret General Hospital.

Carteret General has begun work on the specialty pavilion -- which will be the new state-of-the-art cancer center at the hospital.

The expansion has a $53 million dollar price tag -- which hospital officials say will be paid for through financial reserves, and not tax dollars.
