Exterior of Jersey Shore Ocean Medical Center

The centerpiece of the $300 million project is a, 144-bed patient care pavilion featuring private rooms and an innovative model of nursing care, as well as a new emergency department and trauma center. The department has the capacity to annually treat more than 100,000 patients. The state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment building also offers the latest in diagnostic technology and surgical suites, as well as a 12-bed cardiac care unit.

The geometry of the dramatic entrance and curved, four-story atrium is inspired by the geometry of a sail at full mast, referencing the area’s coastal heritage. Public spaces including multi-story concourses and healing gardens provide positive distractions, promote social support, and offer patients, families, and staff experiences from education and art and access to nature.

Extensive renovations were completed throughout existing buildings and the central utility plant was designed to support the master facility future plans. Site improvements include a new loop road; site development to organize vehicular traffic; and parking garage.
