A 527-bed community teaching hospital affiliated with Barnabas
Health - the state's largest health care system - Monmouth
Medical Center is located one block from the ocean in Long Branch
in Monmouth County. With more than 20,000 adult and pediatric inpatients
and nearly 6,400 same day medical and surgery visits annually, Monmouth
Medical Center sees more than 123,000 patients through its outpatient
department and about 49,000 patients receive acute care through its
Monmouth Medical Center’s team of Pet Therapy Dogs.
By maintaining a leadership role in the delivery
of high-quality health care, Monmouth provides a full spectrum of
services, earning national, state and regional recognition for many
of its programs.
Every day, the corps of adult and teen volunteers at Monmouth Medical
Center make important contributions to patient care and the operation
of the hospital. It would take nearly 20 full-time employees to provide
the approximately 40,000 hours of service donated each year by Monmouth
Medical Center volunteers.
Ambassadors for the medical center, volunteers are an important part
of patient satisfaction efforts as they provide comfort and companionship
to patients in the Emergency Department and on the inpatient units.
And in offices throughout the medical center, volunteers provide valuable
support to hospital employees.
Volunteers benefit from the knowledge that they have helped others.
Working in partnership with the hospital staff for the benefit of
patients and their families, volunteers also are enriched by relationships
developed with fellow volunteers and hospital staff. Monmouth's volunteers,
many of whom offer a lifetime of business experience, bring valuable
insight and suggestions to the operation of the hospital. And for
those poised to embark on a new career or higher education, volunteer
service provides the opportunity to learn new skills and exposure
to the exciting field of health care.
