  • Message from the Foundation Leadership

  • Ann and Tara

    We begin each year with reflection and excitement. We reflect on our achievements and feel excitement about the serious tasks in front of us. In 2016, Monmouth Medical Center moved forward on a number of significant fronts designed to strengthen, renew and build upon our mission to improve health and wellness for the communities we serve.

    This past year, Monmouth Medical Center Foundation turned over more than $4 million dollars to the hospital. Special events exceeded budget, raising more than $1.5 million dollars. MMC employees nearly doubled their annual employee campaign donations! We are grateful for all of our supporters who have allowed our hospital to grow and thrive and are deeply committed to continuing our journey to be the best.

    Our Focus to Be the Best

    We all agree that excellent care is something that all patients expect and deserve. Hospitals work hard to achieve top ratings – it takes the knowledge, teamwork and dedication of the entire hospital staff. For the fourth consecutive year, Monmouth was named the Best Hospital in Monmouth County by the readers of the Asbury Park Press.

    Additionally, the safety of our maternity services was recognized by The Leapfrog Group, the nation’s leading experts on patient safety. Monmouth was the only area hospital to fully meet safety standards in all areas of maternity care. We’re very proud to say that Leapfrog has validated what we have known for a very long time – our maternity services’ longstanding commitment to providing quality care is outstanding.

    For the fourth consecutive year, the Jacqueline M. Wilentz Comprehensive Breast Center was named a recipient of the Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Breast Centers, acknowledging its dedication to providing exceptional patient care and treatment by having met the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) standards from the American College of Surgeons.

    Let's Be Healthy Together

    This year, more than ever before, new constituents were introduced to the hospital’s programs and services through special events and cultivation events. Our cultivation events alone introduced 800 neighbors to Monmouth Medical Center physicians, providing the latest health care information in the comfort of our friends' home. If you would like to host an event, please contact the foundation for more information.

    If you are not yet a member of the Monmouth Medical Center Foundation family, please accept our invitation to join this caring group who believes that we can achieve health care that works, health care that is safe and health care that leaves no one behind in our community.
