What Others are Saying
“It's high time we put patient safety first, and protect the most vulnerable citizens of our State. The time is now to bring cardiac surgery to the people of Ocean County.”Berkeley Mayor Carmen Amato
“The need for access to cardiac surgery in Ocean County is clear...The state needs to give Community's application a fair, objective hearing. If it does so, we are confident the medical center will get the approval Ocean County's residents deserve.”Editorial Board, Asbury Park Press
“In Ocean County the prevalence of heart disease is among the highest in the State, yet residents are forced to travel out of the county for life-saving cardiac care because there are no hospitals nearby that provide cardiac surgery. This is unacceptable.”Toms River Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher
“The town of Manchester has more seniors than any other town in the entire State of New Jersey, yet we have no access to cardiac surgery. This makes no sense. My residents are getting older and sicker, making access to cardiac surgery services even more vital.”Manchester Mayor Mike Fressola
