About Us

As one of New Jersey’s largest academic medical centers, Monmouth Medical Center (MMC)—founded in 1887—attracts the state’s top physicians. MMC has pioneered the latest techniques in minimally invasive surgery, including robotic surgical procedures in both general and orthopedic surgery. MMC’s acquisition of the region’s first robotic da Vinci Surgical System in 2006, followed by a second one several years later, further advanced its surgeons’ ability to treat a host of diseases and disorders with a minimally invasive approach. MMC is the first hospital in the region to offer Makoplasty robotic‐assisted joint replacement surgery.

The Leon Hess Cancer Center at Monmouth Medical Center offers state‐of‐the‐art technology, cutting‐edge treatment options, and participation in leading cancer trials. The Jacqueline M. Wilentz Comprehensive Breast Center utilizes state‐of‐the-art digital mammography, ultrasound, breast MRI, and breast‐specific gamma imaging (BSGI) to provide patients with the highest quality screening and diagnostic technology available. The Wilentz Center also introduced tomosynthesis (3‐D mammography), a first in the region. The Neuroscience Institute introduced Gamma Knife technology to the region, offering patients with brain tumors and brain disorders a proven alternative to invasive surgery.

The Eisenberg Family Center delivers more than 5,400 babies annually—the most in Monmouth and Ocean counties. From birth through adolescence, The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center provides comprehensive care for children, and it was the first hospital in New Jersey to open a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which provides specialized care for sick or premature infants, as well as those requiring emergency surgery.

MMC has the largest and most comprehensive behavioral health program in Monmouth County. Treatment is provided to children, adolescents and adults diagnosed with psychiatric and dual disorders. MMC has earned a host of impressive national accreditations and rankings that attest to the hospital’s commitment to cardiac excellence. These accomplishments, which demonstrate Monmouth’s commitment to provide evidenced‐based cardiology care to patients in a safe environment, include designation as a Primary Stroke Center by the NJ Department of Health.

MMC’s Emergency Department offered the region’s first Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) unit, and has a dedicated Pediatric Emergency Department and the first peer‐to‐peer opioid overdose recovery program in the state.
