Family-Centered Care - Dr. Margaret Fisher

Dr. Fisher states that The Unterberg Children's Hospital feels that family-centered health care is the only way to take care of their patients - who better than the child's parents to know the child. Illness and success in dealing with it must include family, including siblings.

In January 2006, Monmouth Medical Center was licensed by New Jersey as an official children’s hospital for Monmouth and Ocean counties. This meant not a new building, but a new recognition of a long-demonstrated strength. More than four decades ago, Monmouth established a pattern of exceptional pediatric health care, becoming the first hospital in New Jersey to open a Level III neonatal intensive care unit. Today that pattern continues as Monmouth offers the community the renowned medical expertise in the care of children that only a leading academic medical center can provide, with 140 pediatric specialists in 26 fields of medicine. Monmouth Medical Center has been affiliated with Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia since 1969, and has grown today to be Drexel’s largest major academic medical affiliate in New Jersey.

In addition to placing among the best New Jersey hospitals for providing highly specialized neonatal care, The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center’s newborn nursery cares for more than 4,500 babies each year - more than any other hospital in Monmouth and Ocean counties.

Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center is committed to pediatric excellence beginning at birth and extending into areas of general and specialized care in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Here’s a look at The Children’s Hospital’s widely recognized services for children.
