Medical Facilities in Cape May County

I completely understand the need to escape to a peaceful beach town.  That’s why we love living here.

Yet our seasonal atmosphere has always presented challenges when it comes to medical care.

FACTS:

One hospital serves all of Cape May County (Cape May Point to Ocean City and all coastal and inland towns in between).  In the peak summer months, urgent care facilities pick up the slack.

When local residents need specialty care, we often have to travel out of the area.  It’s common for us to see physicians in Atlantic or Camden County, as well as Philadelphia.

This is not a knock to the Cape May County medical professionals.  Our primary doctors are providing the referrals knowing we will receive the appropriate care.

Community leaders and the Governor of New Jersey understand the limitations of the local health care system, and justifiably fear for the health and safety of us all.
