Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center’s $45 million cardiovascular service expansion project is underway with a tentative opening set for the 4th quarter this year. When construction is completed the suite, located on the 4th floor of the NorthWest Pavilion, will provide approximately 30,000 square feet of brand new space allowing cardiovascular experts to deliver the high-quality, state-of-the-art care for which the academic medical center is known.

“Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women and men in the United States,” said Robert C. Garrett, FACHE, chief executive officer, Hackensack Meridian Health. “With this in mind, our network continues to add expert cardiologists, the latest technologies, state-of-the-art facilities, and pioneer investigational patient treatments to combat heart disease in all its forms.”

As Monmouth and Ocean counties’ only open heart and minimally invasive cardiac surgery center, Joint Commission-designated Comprehensive Stroke Center, and major academic medical center, Jersey Shore University Medical Center provides the community with advanced structural heart, electrophysiology (EP) and emergency heart attack and stroke treatment options, as well as groundbreaking patient clinical trials and newly-approved cardiovascular devices.

“We are meeting the needs of the community we serve with this expansion, from eight clinical treatment spaces to 10, and giving our cardiologists, nurses and team members a convenient, centralized, dedicated space and leading-edge tools so they can continue to provide our patients with world-class cardiovascular care,” said Vito Buccellato, MPA, LNHA, president and chief hospital executive, Jersey Shore University Medical Center (JSUMC). “The volume of patients treated by our teams has steadily increased in recent years. We are now the third busiest New Jersey hospital, and as of 2022, we provide the second most diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures in our state.”

The suite will enhance the growing community’s access to expert cardiologists in minimally invasive interventional, EP, and structural heart procedures, and advanced technologies and treatments. “The increase in patient volume has been a result of Jersey Shore University Medical Center’s reputation as a top hospital, with consistent top 10 rankings in N.J. from U.S. News & World Report, ranking in the top five percent of hospitals nationally from Healthgrades, and six-time Magnet designation recognizing nursing excellence, as well as the recent population increase in Monmouth and Ocean counties,” said Kenneth N. Sable, M.D., MBA, FACEP, regional president, Southern Market, Hackensack Meridian Health. “The new suite’s increased capacity will enable patients to schedule elective cardiovascular procedures more quickly, and improve procedure scheduling for patients who are transferred from community hospitals to Jersey Shore so they can receive advanced treatment for complex cases.”

The suite features new diagnostic and treatment spaces, including; four dedicated cardiac catheterization labs, four EP labs and two hybrid operating rooms, and a 28-bay patient prep and recovery area that nearly triples current patient capacity. The design and functionality of the suite was thoughtfully created with input from JSUMC’s cardiologists, nurses, technicians and other hands-on experts with spaces structured to promote efficiency and provide the best experience for patients and their families.

JSUMC is the recipient of several national designations from the American College of Cardiology (ACC), recognizing high-quality cardiovascular care. They include; HeartCare Center - National Distinction of Excellence; NCDR Chest Pain ̶ MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award; Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI and Resuscitation Accreditation; Cardiac Catheterization Lab Accreditation with PCI, and Heart Failure Accreditation with Outpatient Services.
