About Us

Community Medical Center (CMC) is a fully accredited acute care hospital offering area residents highly sophisticated medical treatment close to home. Opened in 1961, CMC has evolved into the state’s largest nonteaching hospital and Ocean County’s largest and most active health care facility.

Community Medical Center

Community Medical Center offers a comprehensive array of services, including advanced cancer care, state‐of‐the‐art neurology and neurosurgery services with a neuro‐interventional lab and a bi‐plane, and cardiac care featuring three cardiac catheterization labs. Surgical services feature two da Vinci robotic surgical platforms including the latest generation da Vinci Xi, and the Mako robotic‐arm assisted system for joint replacement surgery. CMC offers technology typically not found at a community hospital, including a 3‐Tesla MRI, digital mammography, the Rapid Arc linear accelerator (one of the most sophisticated linear accelerators used for radiation therapy), a CyberKnife for treating inoperable tumors and the Veran Lung Navigation System.
