Healthcare

Since Burdette Tomlin Memorial Hospital opened its doors in 1950 with 65 beds and just a few doctors, the hospital has constantly expanded and improved to meet the health care needs of Cape May County residents and visitors.

Recently the hospital, located in the center of the county in Cape May Court House, joined forces with the University of Pennsylvania Health System to provide expanded cancer and cardiovascular services. Through membership in Penn’s Cancer Network, patients now have access to all resources available through Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center. The prestigious affiliation has also enhanced and expanded Burdette’s diagnostic, therapeutic, and research capabilities for cardiac disorders including angina, acute myocardial infarction, congenital heart disease and congestive heart failure.

In 2006, the Cape Community Health Center, a federally qualified health center, opened on Route 9 in Cape May Court House to provide comprehensive primary care for the entire family with specialized services including podiatry, cardiology, gastroenterology and gynecology with credentialed physicians and nurse practitioners. The recent addition of OB and dental services gives patients affordable, quality medical care.

Volunteers in Medicine, located on Route 9 across from Burdette Tomlin Memorial Hospital, helps to provide care to working people who have no health care insurance coverage. A caring staff sees people on an outpatient basis with the financial support of the community and volunteer services.

For more than 40 years, Atlantic Medical Imaging has provided the most advanced diagnostic imaging services to patients and referring physicians. Board-certified physicians educated and trained at such respected institutions as Yale, Stanford, Duke and Johns Hopkins, and state-of-the-art technology that is constantly updated give patients the best possible care.

Today, Burdette Tomlin Memorial Hospital is a fully accredited, 242-bed acute-care medical center that serves an expanding local population and more than one million seasonal visitors with a variety of inpatient and outpatient services. Because of these advances in healthcare through the hospital and other institutions, many physicians affiliated with well-known Philadelphia hospitals now have satellite locations and regular office hours in the local area, offering patients the best in healthcare without leaving the county.

The county is fortunate to have several assisted living centers, as well as long-term care facilities, as part of its health-related services. Plus, medical office complexes around the county and several new urgent care centers help ensure that doctors, services and top-notch healthcare are readily available to everyone in Cape May County.
