East Brunswick-based Specialized Surgical Center of Central New Jersey opened Oct. 27, joining the Virtua Health network.

The center is 10,000 square feet and has three operating rooms. It was formerly known as the Somerset Eye Institute. The center currently performs eye procedures, but can perform more in the future.

The center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.

Joseph Calderone, MD, center medical director, said, "I was fortunate to have my first opportunity to operate at our new facility, the first time two surgeons were operating at the same time, something which could never happen in our former facility, as good as it was."
