Light and technology are the focal points of the newly opened 138,000-square-foot Shore Medical Center Surgical Pavilion, located in the seaside community of Somers Point, N.J. The building's boardroom offers expansive views of the surrounding bay and shore, and visitors to the pavilion are welcomed into a first-floor open lobby framed with floor-to-ceiling windows.
