International Patient Services

internationalpatientsJersey Shore University Medical Center welcomes patients from around the world. We understand the difficulties of managing your health care alone, especially in a foreign setting. Our team is committed to providing international patients, and their families, with the best health care experience. At Jersey Shore, our support services begin the moment you contact us and continue throughout your stay.

Medical Coordination

The Center for Treatment of Paralysis and Reconstructive Nerve Surgery is comprised of a dedicated team to assist prospective patients with information regarding visas and necessary documents, insurance, cost estimates and other financial arrangements.

If a particular insurance is unacceptable, the Center will present a comprehensive estimate of charges to provide patients with a better understanding of financial expectations. The Center will also assist patients in researching alternative payment options.

Patients and their families will have direct access and open communication with the Care Center Coordinator, who is a certified physician assistant. The coordinator provides direct patient care, clinical supervision and consistent support to ensure timely access and efficient management of services across the entire continuum of care. Responsibilities include:

  • Serving as a liaison for patients, family, physicians, nurses and other health care providers
  • Coordinating pre-admission activities (diagnostic tests, case scheduling)
  • Providing educational information and resources to patients and potential patients
  • Facilitating patient teaching and support programs for patients and families

Concierge Care

  • Travel Arrangements
