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.
