Monmouth Medical Center is Growing:
A host of ambitious expansion projects are meeting the needs of our patients,
now and in the future.
The Leon Hess Cancer Center
The Leon Hess Cancer Center at Monmouth is undergoing an ambitious expansion
thanks to a $2.5 million donation from local philanthropist Warren Diamond
and his son, Scott, to create the Cheryl L. Diamond Cancer Care Pavilion,
which will serve as a welcoming and convenient gateway to access the renowned
services of the Leon Hess Cancer Center.
Monmouth Medical Center opened two new surgical suites, bringing more than
700 square feet of state-of-the-art operating space to its thriving Total
Joint Replacement and Spine Center and Neuroscience Institute. The Spine
Surgery Program at Monmouth is one of the top programs in New Jersey,
performing more procedures than any other program in the region, and ranking
second in New Jersey for the number of spine surgeries performed.
Regional Newborn Center
The Hiriar and Anna Hovnanian Foundation Neonatal Intensive Care Unit,
the region's largest state-designated Level III NICU with one of the
highest survival rates in the country, has been expanded to provide more
infants with the specialized care they need, as well as a parent transition
room that allows parents to spend the night with their child pre-discharge
to better prepare for home and a family waiting area to provide a quiet
space for reading or meditation.
The Eisenberg Family Center
The Eisenberg Family Center, where more than 4,500 babies are born each
year-the highest number of deliveries in Monmouth and Ocean counties-
recently expanded to include a new unit that features additional expansive
private postpartum rooms for new mothers. Similar to the existing postpartum
unit, these private rooms provide homelike accommodations and amenities
such as flat-screen televisions, wireless Internet access and a comfortable
environment to visit with family and friends. The unit also houses an
additional newborn nursery.
