Emergency Services

The Ann & Thomas Unterberg Pediatric Emergency Department is led by physicians with fellowship training in pediatric emergency medicine. Monmouth Medical Center treats 15,000+ children each year in the Cline-D’Onofrio Emergency Services Pavilion.

The Pediatric Emergency Room - Dr. Margaret Fisher

  • The Pediatric Emergency Room - thought it was very important to get it established early; not mixed with adult patients. In an area of their own, with pediatrically trained nurses - behavior and pediatric illnesses.
  • The Children’s Emergency Transport Vehicle is an ambulance specially equipped to transport critically ill babies and children from outlying community hospitals to The Children’s Hospital's neonatal and pediatric intensive care units.
  • Pediatric Emergency Services at Kimball Medical Center is a new service of The Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center, offering parents and children a child-friendly treatment area staffed by highly experienced, board-certified emergency medicine physicians. Through The Children’s Hospital at Monmouth, these physicians have access to pediatric consultations 24 hours a day with on-site double board-certified neonatologist/pediatricians, and an on-call, board-certified pediatrician.

Safe Kids

The Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center leads Monmouth County’s first and only chapter of the Safe Kids Campaign — an international initiative to prevent injuries and save young lives.

The county-based chapter is among more than 500 grassroots partnerships worldwide associated with Safe Kids, the first non profit organization dedicated solely to the prevention of unintentional childhood injury or accidents — the No. 1 killer of children age 14 and under.

In addition, the Safe Kids Monmouth County Chapter also partners with the Long Branch Police Department, Long Branch Public School System, Long Branch Department of Recreation and the Coastal Monmouth Alliance for the Prevention of Substance Abuse. Through Monmouth’s Community Health Education Department, The Children’s Hospital regularly sponsors activities to educate parents, caregivers and children about safety and how simple behavior modifications can prevent needless tragedies.
