K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital at Jersey Shore University Medical Center is at the heart of the Meridian Pediatric Network, offering more subspecialty care and expertise than any program in the region.

No matter where you enter this Network, you're surrounded by a comprehensive lineup of doctors, nurses, caregivers, and services that provide seamless coordination for children through every step of an injury or illness. Here, everything your child needs happens in synch at the expert hands of specialists who treat each child as one of their own. No program in Monmouth and Ocean counties offers you more complete, more coordinated care. And you can access this care from Ocean Medical Center in Brick, Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, or at K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune. Simply make sure your pediatrician or primary care physician is affiliated with one of these hospitals so your child can receive care through the Meridian Pediatric Network. When it comes to your child's health, this is where you want to be.
