Press Release - April 9, 2021 - LB to Develop New Centers


LONG BRANCH TO DEVELOP NEW CENTERS FOR CITY'S HEALTH AND POLICE DEPARTMENTS ON MONMOUTH MEDICAL CENTER’S LONG BRANCH CAMPUS Hospital to Partner By Providing Property and Programming As Upgrades To Hospital Continue LONG BRANCH, NJ - APRIL 9, 2021 - Mayor John Pallone and Bill Arnold, President, RWJBarnabas Health Southern Region and President and CEO, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick, said today that Long Branch plans to create new centers for the city's Health and Police Department on property to be donated by the hospital. Monmouth Medical Center, an RWJBarnabas Health facility, will continue renovations and upgrades at the Long Branch campus and develop services and programs that support the new Long Branch centers. "The City will not incur costs to purchase the land for the new centers as Monmouth Medical Center has offered to donate property for the projects. The city will explore the potential to renovate and repurpose current structures for additional cost savings. There is an opportunity now to tap federal and state COVID-19 relief funds for the improvement of these critical Long Branch services," Mayor Pallone said. "The City of Long Branch and Monmouth Medical Center share a proud tradition of providing outstanding healthcare services to our community and we are committed to meeting these needs as the delivery of healthcare evolves," Council President Mario Vieira said. "During the COVID-19 pandemic, Monmouth Medical Center has provided testing, vaccination, and inpatient care for our residents. But the pandemic has shown us that the city's own healthcare and public safety facilities are inadequate for the future." "The growing need for space became apparent when we quickly had to find locations for our testing and vaccination programs. We have outgrown our space in the city and our recent Police Department audit also highlights the the need for better facilities. This is crucial to the success of our police operations. The plan is to establish a new police headquarters and municipal court at the Monmouth Medical Center campus. We will work to create a new Health Monitoring and Telecommunications Training Center," Mayor Pallone stated.  "The COVID-19 pandemic made us aware of the need to prepare our residents for new health emergencies. Our health department, in cooperation with Monmouth Medical Center, wants to enhance wellness programs to assist our residents with living healthier lifestyles," Pallone continued.  "The pandemic also highlighted the digital divide in Long Branch. Many of our residents lack access or training to use a computer, which is so important for virtual work and educational opportunities. This training center will allow us to bridge this digital divide for telehealth or telework purposes," Mayor Pallone concluded. "We are pleased to work with the City of Long Branch at this pivotal time. The pandemic has revealed the importance of access to crucial online services, such as telemedicine appointments and vaccine registration. We are eager to help remove this barrier to care for city residents,” Arnold said. “This new level of collaboration with the city will provide unique opportunities to jointly develop much-needed post-pandemic community health programs for Long Branch and the surrounding communities.” Arnold also stressed that the Long Branch hospital will continue its ongoing renovations and upgrades to ensure that it meets the needs of the community for the future. "We are currently working with an architectural planner to determine how the hospital, campus, and services will be laid out going forward to benefit patients, visitors, city residents, and employees. Our goal is to achieve a town center feel at the Long Branch campus and a transit village that leverages the close proximity to the train station." Arnold stated.  "Monmouth Medical Center is training the physicians of the future as a Regional Medical Campus for Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. The Hospital will continue to provide the highest quality of inpatient and outpatient services for the community with an emphasis on specialized services for newborns, women, and older adults,” said Arnold. “We are partnering with other RWJBarnabas Health facilities, such as Children’s Specialized Hospital and the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, to develop a network of robust outpatient facilities in Monmouth County. We are also proud to provide direct access to care at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick as needed." Congressman Frank Pallone stressed that the City of Long Branch has several new potential federal funding streams it may be able to utilize to renovate buildings donated by Monmouth Medical Center to Long Branch. He will also seek federal dollars for hospital expansion and improvements of Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, which are both part of his congressional district.
