Jersey Shore University Medical Center (JSUMC) is a 691-bed[1] non-profit, tertiary research and academic medical center located in Neptune Township, New Jersey, servicing coastal New Jersey and the Central Jersey area.[2] JSUMC is the region’s only university-level academic medical center. The hospital is part of the Hackensack Meridian Health Health System and is the system's second largest hospital. JSUMC is affiliated with the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School of Rutgers University,[3] and Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University.[4] JSUMC is also an ACS designated level II trauma center[5][6] with a rooftop helipad handling medevac patients.[7] Attached to the medical center is the K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital that treats infants, children, adolescents, and young adults up to the age of 21. JSUMC is listed as a major teaching and tertiary care hospital and has a staff of 127 interns and residents. It is a member of the Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems.[8]

History[edit]

Jersey Shore University Medical Center was founded in 1904 and originally named the Ann May Memorial Homeopathic Hospital.[9] In 1932, it was renamed Raleigh Fitkin-Paul Morgan Memorial Hospital.[10] In 1966, it was renamed the Jersey Shore Medical Center – Fitkin Hospital. In 2003, it was renamed Jersey Shore University Medical Center to reflect its heightened commitment to teaching.[11][12]

Panorama of 2009 expansion to the hospital. (Northwest Pavilion)

In 2009, the hospital expanded to include a 5 story tower with patient care units and an emergency department with 10 pediatric beds,[13] cardiology units, and pediatric units.[14] The expansion added 103 beds to the hospital and organized patient rooms into "neighborhoods"[clarification needed] to ease patient anxiety. The design is recognized as an example of great hospital design.[15][16][17]

Before merging with Hackensack University Medical Center, Meridian Health's flagship facility was JSUMC.

In 2019, the hospital once again expanded by building the 10 story, 300,000 square foot Healing Outpatient Experience (HOPE Tower) at a cost of $265 million. The HOPE Tower includes outpatient cancer care, maternity, pediatrics, doctors offices and high-tech academic and research space.[18][19][20] As a part of the expansion, the HOPE tower includes a 200 seat[21] auditorium named the John K. Lloyd Amphitheater after the former co-CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health.[22][23]

In March 2020, JSUMC implemented strict visitation protocols to help reduce the spread of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.[24] In April 2020 the hospital drew criticism when they fired a nurse after the nurse voiced concerns over the lack of protective equipment (PPE) available to staff.[25] A month later more employees came forward to criticize the hospital's PPE actions in the matter.[26]

In early 2021, JSUMC opened a new cardiac catheterization lab as part of the first stage of a $45 million cardiovascular expansion scheduled to be completed in July 2023.[27] In 2003, the hospital performed 636 cardiac operations, the 5th most in the New York-New Jersey region according to a New York Times heart study.[28]
