Changes to Services and Visitation Policy at Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus

We are ready to see you. It’s safe to go to the hospital again. Don’t delay your healthcare.

For the safety and well-being of our patients, their loved ones, our staff and the communities we serve, Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus (MMCSC) is making temporary changes to our visitation policy as we continue to proactively respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

MMCSC is among the New Jersey hospitals adopting visiting guidelines set forth by the New Jersey Hospital Association based on identified regional risk levels throughout the state. At present, Ocean County is in the Red Risk Level and warrants the highest level of visitation suspension, with limited exceptions, for the safety of all.

  • For all adult medical inpatient units, visitation at the bedside is restricted with limited exceptions.
  • Emergency Department visitation is restricted with limited exceptions.
  • Outpatients may be accompanied by one support person, who may be directed to an alternate waiting area to ensure physical distancing.
  • Same Day Surgery or Medical Day Stay patients will be dropped off at the main entrance, and the designated family member will be notified to rejoin the patient for the discharge process.
  • Visitors under 18 years of age will not be permitted.
  • We will accommodate all visitation in compliance with Department of Health and Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines.

We encourage family members and friends to use alternative methods to interact with their loved ones, including phone calls, FaceTime and Skype. For those without access to a smartphone, tablet or computer, the MMCSC nursing team can facilitate virtual visits using iPads available on patient care units and in the Emergency Department.
