Monmouth Medical Center (MMC), an RWJBarnabas Health (RWJBH) facility, has announced plans to construct  the Vogel Medical Campus at Tinton Falls in the US.

The campus is an outpatient care centre at the previous Fort Monmouth Myer Center site.

It is funded by a $50m gift to MMC from local philanthropists Sheldon and the late Anne Vogel.

Construction of the campus is anticipated to start early next year.

The medical campus will offer care in a convenient place where patients can get services in one place.

The outpatient centre will have surgical and imaging services, physician offices and support services.

Patients will also get access to cancer care in the campus which is provided in collaboration with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

Monmouth Medical Center president and CEO Eric Carney said: “We are working to create an outstanding experience by making high-quality services available when, where and how patients prefer.

“As an expansion of the MMC campus in Long Branch, the Vogel Medical Campus is located within the communities we already serve. It will be a future-forward facility uniquely tailored to meet the needs of our diverse and growing community.”

As part of MMC’s mission to generate a unified outpatient network, the development of the Vogel Medical Campus helps patients maintain wellness and meet their care needs.

It is also backed by the extensive primary and specialty care offering network of RWJBH throughout the area.

Recently, MMC and its Unterberg Children’s Hospital launched the Anne Vogel Family Care and Wellness Center at the Monmouth Mall in Eatontown.

The centre provides access to RWJBH’s Children’s Specialized Hospital offerings.

Additionally, MMC and Monmouth University collaborated to launch the Linda Grunin Simulation Lab and Learning Center in West Long Branch.
