Children and adolescents have unique health needs, and no other hospital in the region is better equipped to meet every one of them.

We are known for innovative treatments, advanced technologies, life-saving care, and unsurpassed dedication to the children and families we serve.

    Mackenzie and Michael Kennett's four boys all were born preterm and expertly cared for at Monmouth Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Their boys' NICU stays varied - from four months with the eldest, Max, to just over a week with the youngest, twin boys - but the support the family received hour by hour for each child was invaluable. "You feel helpless," Michael Kennett said. "You don't know what to expect." Through it all, the Monmouth Medical Center team was amazing.

    Charlie & Jorgia

    Premature babies come into this world fighting for their lives. I am so thankful mine had the team at Monmouth Medical Center fighting along with them. Prematurity is not always pretty. But, from that first moment, we knew our daughters were a beautiful miracle. At just over 1 pound each, with so many tubes and devices attached to them, holding our newborn twins and spending time with them was sometimes overwhelming. Watching them progress from tiny, fragile infants to active toddlers has been an amazing journey. Charlie and Jorgia were considered high risk from the start and they are with us ...

The family returned home and immediately took Becca to The Thomas and Ann Unterberg Pediatric Emergency Department at Monmouth Medical Center.

    Kaylyn and Dylan

    Kids can say the darnedest things. So the thumbs up from children treated at the Thomas & Ann Unterberg Pediatric Emergency Department are extra special. Raj Kaur has two active children— which has meant many trips to the Emergency Department. And each time, the Holmdel mom has taken her kids to the Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center, where they receive specialized care in the Thomas & Ann Unterberg Pediatric Emergency Department (ED). While other hospitals are closer to Kaur’s home, she’s willing to drive an extra 20 minutes or so to Monmouth Medical Center whenever ...
