LONG BRANCH, N.J. – Monmouth Medical Center, a Barnabas Health facility, has been named one of the top hospitals in New Jersey by doctors according to the results of a survey recently published in Inside Jersey magazine.
The magazine joined with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., one of the nation’s most respected health care research and information companies, to ask New Jersey doctors to identity the Top Hospitals in New Jersey. Additionally, Inside Jersey and Castle Connolly joined with IPRO, one of the largest independent, not-for-profit health care consulting organizations in the country, to present post-discharge ratings of New Jersey hospitals by patients. Together, the results from Castle Connolly and IPRO provide an overall picture of the quality of care delivered at New Jersey Hospitals.
Among hospitals with more than 350 beds, Monmouth Medical Center was named by doctors as a “Top Hospital Overall,” and New Jersey patients – through IPRO’s post-discharge ratings – ranked Monmouth Medical Center among the top in the state. Monmouth also ranked among the top for cleanliness and communication with nurses.
Monmouth was also the only hospital in Monmouth County listed as a Top Hospital for the treatment of:
- Breast cancer,
- Prostate cancer,
- Pediatric cancer,
- Hip and knee repair,
- Heart failure,
- Neurological disorders,
- Stroke, and
- High risk pregnancy.
“It is gratifying that patients and fellow physicians gave us such high remarks,” said Frank J. Vozos, M.D., FACS, president and chief executive officer of Monmouth Medical Center. “It’s a testament to the commitment of our physicians, nurses and staff to ensure the highest quality, specialized patient care.”
