History: Dedication of Bayshore Community Hospital (1972)

The 4 May 1972 edition of The Matawan Journal reported on the dedication of the new Bayshore Community Hospital in Holmdel. The ceremony was held on Sunday 30 Apr 1972 and the hospital opened Monday 1 May 1972.

The hospital was located on a 17-acre site and included 158 beds, four operating rooms, an emergency suite, and X-ray, intensive care and coronary care units.

After several failed attempts to construct a hospital in the area, a group of local doctors and businessmen got together in 1961 and formed the committee that eventually got the support needed to build Bayshore Community.

The article provided the names and activities of the founders as well as the participants at the dedication ceremony.
