Family-Centered Care - Dr. Margaret Fisher
Dr. Fisher states that The Unterberg Children's Hospital feels that
family-centered health care is the only way to take care of their patients
- who better than the child's parents to know the child. Illness and
success in dealing with it must include family, including siblings.
In January 2006, Monmouth Medical Center was licensed by New Jersey as
an official children’s hospital for Monmouth and Ocean counties.
This meant not a new building, but a new recognition of a long-demonstrated
strength. More than four decades ago, Monmouth established a pattern of
exceptional pediatric health care, becoming the first hospital in New
Jersey to open a Level III neonatal intensive care unit. Today that pattern
continues as Monmouth offers the community the renowned medical expertise
in the care of children that only a leading academic medical center can
provide, with 140 pediatric specialists in 26 fields of medicine. Monmouth
Medical Center has been affiliated with Drexel University College of Medicine
in Philadelphia since 1969, and has grown today to be Drexel’s largest
major academic medical affiliate in New Jersey.
In addition to placing among the best New Jersey hospitals for providing
highly specialized neonatal care, The Unterberg Children’s Hospital
at Monmouth Medical Center’s newborn nursery cares for more than
4,500 babies each year - more than any other hospital in Monmouth and
Ocean counties. The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical
Center is committed to pediatric excellence beginning at birth and extending
into areas of general and specialized care in both inpatient and outpatient
settings. Here’s a look at The Children’s Hospital’s
widely recognized services for children.
