Monmouth Medical Center

Admissions total more than 19,000 annually, and emergency visits total nearly 49,000 a year. Annual outpatient clinic visits top 126,000.

Since Monmouth opened its doors in 1887 from four rented rooms above a Long Branch storefront, it has been a pioneer in providing health care services. In the 1940’s, it gained international renown for an innovative polio treatment. In the 1960’s, it was the first hospital in New Jersey to install a linear accelerator. And recently, it took a leadership role among hospitals in the region as the first in New Jersey to perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy – now a commonplace procedure.

Monmouth Medical Center, one of the largest community teaching hospitals in New Jersey, is an affiliate of RWJBarnabas Health. It is accredited with commendation by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and is a member of the Council of Teaching Hospitals of the Association of American Medical Colleges, a status held by only 400 of the nation’s 6,000 hospitals.
