About Our Hospital Onslow Memorial Hospital (OMH), originally founded in 1944, stands as a 162-bed acute care, community hospital located in coastal North Carolina, serving the city of Jacksonville and greater Onslow County. Onslow Memorial Hospital is nationally accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC). The year 2008 marked the opening of the hospital's new state-of-the-art ER and Surgical Pavilion, the first major step in a multi-phase expansion project. Future expansion calls for a new patient tower to be constructed directly over the ER and Surgical Pavilion. The new Radiation Oncology Center, designed to be nearly 10, 000 square feet, is projected to open in late 2010 or early 2011, and will allow cancer patients needing radiation treatment to stay right here in Onslow County for therapy. The OMH Radiation Oncology Center will have the highest quality linear accelerator and will benefit from a partnership with the Brody School of Medicine, considered to be a world leader in radiation treatment technology.
