Your Trusted Community Health Care Partner

Nearly 5 years ago the community said good-bye to Kimball Medical Center and welcomed the concept of having one of the top health care systems in the state, RWJBarnabas Health’s Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus (MMCSC), in their backyard. It was just the beginning of the journey toward excellent health care for Monmouth and Ocean County residents.

Frank J. Vozos, MD, FACS, Executive Vice President, RWJBarnabas Health and Chief Executive at MMCSCUnder the expert leadership of Frank J. Vozos, MD, FACS, who led Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch for more than two decades, MMCSC continues its mission to provide the highest level of care to our diverse community.

“After we merged in 2014, we made some promises to the community, which we fulfilled and are moving at a records pace to gain trust and be ‘the hospital of choice,’ explains Frank J. Vozos, MD, FACS, Executive Vice President, RWJBarnabas Health and Chief Executive at MMCSC. Respect and trust must be earned and at Monmouth South, our patient satisfaction scores continue to grow and the notion that ‘seeing is believing’ is a true testament for patients who have been treated as an inpatient or even for an emergency room visit.

MMCSC hospital roomMMCSC is an affiliate of the RWJBarnabas Health system and a sister hospital to Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, both household names in New Jersey. But, many are not aware that it is the only hospital in the region to provide private rooms on all inpatient units, offering an environment more conducive to healing. MMCSC has modernized its surgical suites as well as recruited great young surgeons, who join a team of seasoned experts, performing both minimally invasive and complex surgeries.

There are many new services designed with our growing community in mind: The James and Sharon Maida Geriatrics Institute offers unique integrated inpatient and outpatient geriatric services, as well as consultative services, such as cognitive screening and primary care for patients 65 and older-all in one convenient location. Our board certified geriatricians, nurse practitioners and specialty nurses have a full understanding of ‘aging adults’ and the Institute is being used as the model for treating an aging community. A clever inception from the Geriatrics Institute is the ‘Better Health Senior Membership Program.’ A free program for patients 55 and older, who want to improve their health and well-being.

“We are also proud to bring comprehensive breast services to our female population,” explains Vozos. “Women can now get both screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast biopsies, breast MRI and more. Our support system for patients diagnosed with cancer has also grown, with a beautiful Infusion Unit, Oncology Rehabilitation and the Cancer Support Community.”

Monmouth Medical Center Southern CampusNot only has MMCSC enhanced its facility, offering a warmer more inviting environment, it has succeeded in bringing state-of-the-art technology to the community, including MRI ultrasound fusion biopsy, to diagnose prostate cancer, testing suspected prostate tumors by fusing MRI images of the prostate with ultrasound images. Chief Medical Officer, Rajesh Mohan, MD, MBA, FACC, FSCAI, was one of the first in Ocean County to successfully implant a Bluetooth-enabled pacemaker. This wireless technology allows patients to monitor their heart rhythms at all times using their smartphones, and alerts their physicians should any abnormalities arise.

Remember, if the need arises, our Emergency Department offers Fast Track, new technology called, Teleneurology as well as a designated Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) Unit. “Our board certified emergency physicians are ready to treat even your youngest family member,” continues Vozos. “We can also provide on-site emergency psychiatric screening services and ensure that we can interpret in your language.
