After much anticipation, the RWJBarnabas Health Athletic Performance Center opened in September, a visible example of the growing partnership between Rutgers and RWJBarnabas Health. The four-story facility, adjacent  to the Rutgers Athletic Center (the RAC) on the Livingston campus in Piscataway, provides the best in practice facilities, training areas, locker rooms, and offices  for men’s and women’s basketball, wrestling, and gymnastics. The center  also helps fulfill the partnership’s ambitious effort to provide a comprehensive sports medicine program to serve Rutgers athletes, students, and New Jersey communities. RWJBarnabas Health, the health care provider for Rutgers Athletics, is creating a best-in-class sports medicine program that will be expanded across  New Jersey. “It’s going to be a game-changer for our student-athletes in clinical care,” says Pat Hobbs, the director of athletics at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. “They are going to receive the very best in sports medicine.”
