“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 Hospital Hosts Stroke Prevention Seminar

August 24, 2012

On Friday, August 24, 2012, Meadowlands Hospital presented a Stroke Prevention Seminar to the residents of Secaucus and local communities. Denis Tighe, Nurse Manager of Emergency Department facilitated the event and educated the attendees of the warning signs of a stroke and communicated ways to help prevent a stroke from happening. Emergency Services Director, Young Yoon, MD was also available to hear comments and answer questions from the group. Both speakers were able to instruct about the differences between a hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke and how they both vary from a transient ischemic attack or TIA. Balancing your life with physical activity, a healthy diet and abstaining from smoking are the three main ways to assist your body in preventing a stroke.

Following that philosophy, healthy refreshments, which included baked turkey bacon, fresh fruit cup and whole grain baked goods were distributed. Educational materials focusing on blood pressure maintenance, and dietary issues such as limiting sodium and certain foods to avoid high blood pressure were available to participants. This event was just the first in a series of presentations that the facility is planning focusing on such areas as podiatry issues, good nutritional habits and Women’s Health that will be presented in the future. Please look for upcoming notices in local newspapers, MHMC website, Town of Secaucus website and area libraries.
