K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital at Jersey Shore University Medical Center
As the region's first and most comprehensive pediatric program, we are committed to keeping children healthy by providing the highest quality of care.
In 2006, the children's hospital located in Jersey Shore University Medical Center became the first state-designated children's hospital in the bi-county area and was renamed K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital. The designation recognizes years of advanced pediatric clinical care services provided by Jersey Shore.
In 2008, the Children's Hospital expanded to include a teen lounge, a satellite nursing station, and additional pediatric rooms, bringing its total number of beds up to 31 (plus a six bed pediatric intensive care unit). The rest of the rooms received an aesthetic overhaul, with family friendly features, such as flat-screen televisions.
In the summer of 2009, K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital opened a dedicated pediatric Emergency Department (ED), as part of Jersey Shore's $300 million transformation project. The ED now has a separate entrance and triage area, as well as 10-12 pediatric beds.
