Trenton, NJ — Illustrating New Jersey's ability to attract development, investment and employment opportunities, Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno today joined executives from the Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Center to celebrate its new facility in Middletown, which will create more than 160 jobs. The Partnership for Action - which includes the New Jersey Business Action Center (BAC) and Economic Development Authority (EDA) - assisted in bringing this project to fruition.
"This project is a perfect example of the Partnership for Action's ability to help make a complex project a reality," said Lt. Governor Guadagno. "In addition to the delivery of premier services to its patients, Memorial Sloan Kettering's decision to expand in Middletown will bring a corporate campus that had been vacant for a decade back to life, strengthening the tax base and stimulating the local economy by creating jobs."
