Patient Rooms

The room that you are in allows us to provide the best care possible to fit your medical needs. If there is a change in your condition that requires a different type of care, we may need to move you to another room. Please speak with your nurse if you have any concerns or questions about possible room relocations.

Private Rooms
We know that if given a choice, most patients would prefer a private room. While there are a limited number of private rooms at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, most of the rooms are semi-private or shared rooms.

At any time during your stay with us, you may request a private room. We will make every effort to accommodate that request, but please note that private rooms cost more than semi-private rooms and insurance companies may not pay the difference.

Room Cleaning
Your room and bathroom will be cleaned and trash emptied on a daily basis. If you need additional cleaning service, contact our Environmental Services staff or alert your nurse.

 

Pharmacy

Conveniently located in the Brennan Lobby, the Meridian Pharmacy is available to patients to fill any necessary prescriptions before they even leave the hospital's doors. The Meridian Pharmacy accepts most prescription plans, and payment can be made by cash, check, or credit card. The Pharmacy — open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. — also offers two dedicated parking spaces right in front of the hospital's main entrance.
