The new Vogel Medical Campus will expand world-class care close to home.

It’s happening: Monmouth Medical Center (MMC) celebrated the groundbreaking of the Vogel Medical Campus at Tinton Falls in June. The new campus will offer seamless access to surgical and imaging services and comprehensive cancer care together with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the state’s only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.

MMC has engaged in years of planning to reach this milestone, working with local community members and partners to develop a campus that will provide exceptional, patient-centered care close to home for more Monmouth County residents.

“We are proud of the trust and confidence placed in us to transform healthcare in the region through the development of the Vogel Medical Campus,” says Eric Carney, President and Chief Executive Officer of MMC and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus. “Together, we will continue to work with our patients, families, clinicians and partners to advance healthcare in our communities.”

A Community-Centered Facility

The five-story, 150,000-square-foot outpatient center, located at the historic Fort Monmouth Myer Center site, is set to open in 2025. It will honor Fort Monmouth’s legacy of innovation, leveraging advancements in medical space planning and technology to provide easy access for patients and their loved ones and an ideal space for physicians to deliver the highest-caliber care.

“Our collective investment in MMC through the Vogel Medical Campus allows us to expand access to high-quality, equitable care to residents of Monmouth County and beyond,” says Mark E. Manigan, President and Chief Executive Officer, RWJBarnabas Health (RWJBH). “It is our privilege to have the opportunity to care for the community, and we thank them for trusting us to be their partner in health and wellness.”

The new medical campus is designed to enhance the patient experience by providing comprehensive same-day surgery; onsite specialty physician offices; advanced diagnostic imaging; and multiple floors dedicated exclusively to state-of-the-art cancer services, which will include a comprehensive oncology clinic and centers for advanced infusion and radiation therapy treatment.

“We know that cancer doesn’t travel well, and patients shouldn’t have to leave the state or go far from home to receive the best care possible,” says Steven Libutti, MD, FACS, Director of Rutgers Cancer Institute and Senior Vice President of Oncology Services for RWJBH. “As New Jersey’s only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we are at the forefront of cancer research and care—transforming discoveries into clinical practice, advancing our understanding of a disease that impacts so many and supporting our patients from prevention to treatment and survivorship.”

The Vogel Medical Campus’s services and park-like setting also reflect MMC’s and RWJBH’s ongoing commitment to Monmouth County.

“Our evolution is only made possible thanks to the community leaders and philanthropic supporters who work alongside us to bring Monmouth County’s residents what they need,” says Bill Arnold, Executive Vice President and President of the Southern Region, RWJBH, and Chief Executive Officer of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. “With the development of the Vogel Medical Campus, we are entering a future where residents can stay close to home to receive world class healthcare.”
