Adolescent Medicine

The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center offers a host of health services for the adolescent patient, ages 11 through 18, including an Adolescent Medicine Program that provides consultations for eating disorders, menstrual irregularities and contraceptive counseling, as well as general adolescent health issues.

Adolescent patients also receive general medical care and gynecological care in the Monmouth Family Health Center located in Long Branch. This center provides comprehensive health care to families from a wide range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

The Mary Stavola Pavilion also features a host of amenities for teenage inpatients, including the Ezra Abraham To Life Living Room, which was designed as an inviting living room with laptop computers and wireless Internet access. Funded through The Ezra Abraham To Life Foundation, the Living Room is a bright, energetic space adjacent to the traditional playroom on the inpatient pediatrics unit that is home to a myriad fun activities. The goal of the room is to make a space that, for teens, is like being at home.

The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center is a training site for the national Safe Sitter program. Presented by certified Safe Sitter instructors, the program teaches 11- to 13-year olds to be responsible, creative babysitters and handle emergencies.
