3 NJ Townships Call State to Approve Cardiac Surgery at Community Medical Center

Three New Jersey townships have passed legislation calling for the state to allow Community Medical Center in Toms River, N.J., to offer cardiac surgery, according to an Asbury Park Press report.

The hospital has been seeking approval to offer this service for eight years but has not received the necessary certificate of need approval from the state.

Ocean County, where the hospital is located, has one of the largest senior populations in the state but has no cardiac surgery program. This week, the cities of Manchester, Toms River and Berkeley in New Jersey adopted a resolution supporting such a program at CMC.
