Monmouth Medical Center is a not-for-profit, regional tertiary care teaching
hospital located in Long Branch, New Jersey. The hospital provides a full

1 million year-round residents in Monmouth, and portions of Ocean and

Since Monmouth opened its doors in 1887 from four rented rooms above a
Long Branch storefront, it has been a pioneer in providing health care
services. In the 1940’s, it gained international renown for an innovative
polio treatment. In the 1960’s, it was the first hospital in New
Jersey to install a linear accelerator. And recently, it took a leadership
role among hospitals in the region as the first in New Jersey to perform
laparoscopic cholecystectomy – now a commonplace procedure.

in New Jersey, is an affiliate of RWJBarnabas Health. It is accredited
with commendation by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare
