It was just announced this week that RWJBarnabas Health is moving into the old Kmart site on Rt. 18 in East Brunswick. The former Rt. 18 Kmart will be home to multiple medical practices expected to open in 2023. Part of that space will be for Children’s Specialized Hospital, RWJ's children's hospital located at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch.

Last week, RWJBarnabas just opened a brand-new, four-story outpost at the Monmouth Mall in Eatontown. That site will offer children's healthcare, a breastfeeding center, women's health, and OB/GYN, the new home for Monmouth Medical Center's pioneering Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders Center (depression and anxiety before, during, and after pregnancy) and even a demo kitchen promoting healthy eating from NJ rocker Jon Bon Jovi. RWJ will also expand Children's Specialized to the Monmouth Mall location, as well. Read that story: Monmouth Mall Medical Office Opens, With Bon Jovi Test Kitchen.
