We are very proud to share with you what our patients say about Meadowlands Hospital... readmore

“I had such a great experience at the Meadowlands Hospital! From ER Registration to nurses, anesthesiologist to my doctor – everyone was very professional and nice but most importantly caring! This is what makes this hospital great!"
— Emma R., Meadowlands Hospital Same Day Surgery Patient, May 2017

“MHMC Staff made me feel comfortable and at ease at all times. Nurses always made sure my bed was made and cleaned. I never knew hospital food could be so good. Great meals! Nurses were helpful – amazing staff. For my first C-section, there is no way I could have done it without my nurses. Thank you. Nurses made sure I was in no pain and kept up with me as much as possible. Everyone was friendly and polite. Staff made me feel like family and they honestly cared. At first I was very nervous because it was my first time in this hospital – after my experience I will recommend this hospital to everyone. One of the best hospitals I have ever been to – please keep up the good work!”

MEADOWLANDS EMERGENCY

MHMC HEALTHFEED

Eye on Irene

29 August 2011

The Meadowlands Hospital once again proved its reputation of a mobile, fast reacting, well equipped, professional medical facility. The hospital and its staff were prepared for Hurricane Irene days before it hit the area last Saturday night.

Multiple proactive meetings were held to discuss the hospital's comprehensive emergency management plan and precautions that needed to be taken to protect the staff and patients. The Command Center was created to define and coordinate the roles and responsibilities of staff members. To enable the quick triage of patients before being sent to Meadowlands Hospital, a mobile Emergency and Triage Room and ambulance staging area were established at the Hubert Street School in Secaucus. McCabe Ambulance Corporation staged the hospitals ambulances to ensure that the community had service during the hurricane. This was the only set-up of its kind in Hudson County.

The hospital was stocked up on water, food and additional medical supplies and equipment for up to five or six days. Extra beds and sleeping areas were created to receive additional patients. The Meadowlands Hospital was one of a few medical facilities in the area that was not closed during the storm. Shifts were doubled, most of the hospital’s staff members were on site and the rest of the employees were on stand-by, ready to start immediately. We made sure that we had an orthopedist and neurologist on site to treat the traumas that usually occur during the natural disasters. Our outstanding facilities maintenance crew worked their magic to keep us afloat so we could function properly. Some extra preventive measures were taken to protect the hospital inside and out. All the entrances to critical areas such as the electrical room, emergency room and data centers have been sandbagged and sealed.

Our work during the storm was about caring for our patients, families, and staff. It was a shining example of the support we extend to the community we serve, and our ability to come together against any disaster that comes our way.
