The hospital, which opened as a 50-bed facility 50 years ago, now offers advanced cancer care, a top-drawer neuroscience program, and enhanced services for women and children among other initiatives. Facilities include 10 operating rooms, state-of-the-art medical equipment, and an emergency department almost as large as many hospitals in the area. More than 100,000 patients passed through Community's Emergency Department in 2010.

Bloom noted that despite these achievements and more, Community has been denied a cardiac surgery license by the N.J. Department of Health and Senior Services. (OC Mayors adopted a resolution calling for such a license in 2007. You'll find it here.) There is also a slide presentation that addresses the cardiac license issue. You'll find that here.
