PHOTO: KMC Begins Rebranding Process to ‘MMC Southern Campus’

kmc mmcPHOTO: Kimball Medical Center today began the rebranding process of the 100 year old hospital – a move the hospital says will bring better healthcare to its patients.

“Health care is changing and so are we – Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus – a new name, a new era,” reads the first sign indicating the historic change. The sign, placed today above the emergency entrance, will be followed by the changing of all the other KMC signs around the hospital.

In January, Barnabas Health announced its plans to merge Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood with Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch to create an integrated, regionalized, two-campus partnership.

As of May 1st, all newborn deliveries were diverted to area hospitals. [TLS]

  1. Just to get a little load off my chest. I was born and raised in Lakewood, at this very same hospital fifty years ago. My children were also born and raised here. It just doesn’t make sense that babies are no longer delivered here anymore, sad as a matter of fact. After all this town is the fastest growing city around with the most births, yet no more will be panned to happen here. Just lain sad.

  2. So is it safe to say there has been an increase in babies born in motor vehicles? Seems kind of silly to not have a delivery center in the heart of the place that has the most kids.

  3. I’m sure MMC very shortly will put a functional labor & delivery & delivery unit in their “Southern” campus. At least I hope so. Car deliveries are good for flowers & such, not so good for babies.
