Life at the Shore

Long Branch is a pleasant ocean beach resort city strategically located along the near to major cities like New York, Philadelphia and Atlantic City. The city is connected to New York City and Northern New Jersey via New Jersey Transit trains running on the North Jersey Coast Line and through Garden State Parkway by road.

lifeMonmouth Medical Center is located in the heart of Long Branch, just a couple of blocks from the Jersey Shores. Long a popular spot for surf, sun and shore fun, the town, with its cutting-edge residential beachside condos, premier shops and restaurants at Pier Village, has created a buzz all along the northern shore. During the summer, there are free weekly outdoor concerts and movies under the stars and year-round historic sites, parks, shops and restaurants that offer something for every interest.

The sands and water from the famous Sandyhook National Recreation Area through Monmouth beach to the summer resort of Asbury Park have been long drawing swimmers, surfers, tourists, watersports adventurers, fishers, leaving not even the Presidents of the country.

The renovated 9.5-mile long Boardwalk overlooking the ocean is one of the favorite places for our residents and employees. In their free time, residents frequently engage in activities that are leisurely and that build camaraderie.

Residents involve in sporting competitions in volleyball, soccer, basketball, and cricket and go out together for bowling, snow-sports, trail hiking and adventurous sports like bungee jumping and skydiving.

The family atmosphere is strengthened by frequent get-togethers organized by residents as for thanksgiving, Halloween, New Year and ethnic festivities of residents. Residents in other departments, hospital employees, and attendings are often a part of these events.

Long Branch and the adjacent townships of Ocean, Asbury Park, Eatontown and West Long Branch offer affordable and quality housing, excellent public and private schools and all facilities at a short distance. The most ethnically diverse society; home to more scientists and engineers per mile than anywhere else in the world; third highest per capita income in the country; top school system in the country and home to prestigious universities including Ivies make New Jersey one of the most coveted location to settle down. And the region boasts a whole lot more. Acres of farmland straddle the more rural roads, which are colored by produce stands overflowing with just-harvested fruits and vegetables.A mixture of quaint stores, cafes, and galleries line historic shopping districts that haven’t lost their small-town charm.
