Across the country, people turn to teaching hospitals every day for specialized surgeries, life-saving care, and complex treatments. Academic medical centers are where medical knowledge continuously evolves and new cures and treatments are found through clinical trials.
K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital at Jersey Shore University Medical Center is the academic hub of the Meridian Pediatric Network. With the support of Riverview Medical Center, Ocean Medical Center, Southern Ocean Medical Center, and Bayshore Community Hospital pediatricians are actively researching ways to improve pediatric care and offering the latest treatment options.
Meridian upholds a mission of training the next generation of health care professionals. Tomorrow's physicians must understand how to incorporate patients into decision-making. They need to know how to relate to diverse cultures. They also need a business mind so they can understand how to work within the complexities of insurers.
