The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center

Many events at Community Medical Center benefit The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center. Because of the support of so many in our community we were able to bring CyberKnife technology to Ocean County. Due to its pinpoint accuracy, the CyberKnife allows our radiation oncologist to reach inoperable tumors that were impossible to treat in the past- offering new hope and a better quality of life.


Thanks to everyone who supported our 10th Annual Wine Tasting Event, a portion of the proceeds were used to purchase a new car for the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center. This vehicle is used daily to transport patients to and from Community Medical Center for their treatments. This annual event supports improvements throughout the cancer center.


The 10th Annual Phil Citta Memorial Fundraiser which was held at The Office Lounge was another huge success! This annual event was held on Wednesday, February 18th where a portion of the days proceeds benefit the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center at Community Medical Center. This year the event raised over $23,000 giving a total of over $200,000 raised over the years for the Cancer Center.


In October 2014 Representatives from Community Medical Center, the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation and American Cancer Society celebrated the grand opening of the Inspiration Boutique, a specialty center for cancer patients located within the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center at Community Medical Center.

As patients undergoing treatments for cancer often experience hair loss, the Inspiration Boutique provides cancer patients with access to a large variety of wig styles and hats/caps, free of charge. Patients may also participate in reiki therapy and other complementary therapies, also at no cost.
