Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center Announces New Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program
(Secaucus, NJ) Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center (MHMC) announced today the accreditation of its new Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program, the hospital's first medical residency.
"Orthopedic surgery is an exceptionally challenging and competitive specialty and we're honored that our hospital has been selected as the training ground for new surgeons," said Dr. Maurizio Miglietta, MHMC Chief of Surgery and Director of Medical Education. "This is the first of what will be several residency programs provided by Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center."
The new residency program, accredited by the American Osteopathic Association, will commence on July 1, 2013. The five-year program is approved for twenty positions.
The MHMC program is unique in that it is designed to give participants a greater depth and breadth of experiences by exposing them to a variety of patient populations found in Northern New Jersey. In addition to their rounds at Meadowlands Hospital, residents will have the opportunity to rotate through Palisades Medical Center, Englewood Hospital Medical Center and Hackensack University Medical Center for additional specialty training.
"There will always be a need for top notch physicians and surgeons to serve people living in the area," said Lynn McVey, MHMC Acting CEO. "By bringing in physicians to this part of the state early in the beginning stages of their careers, we'll create a pipeline of specialists who will be eager to live and work in the Meadowlands region. We are thrilled to welcome an academic environment at the hospital."
The hospital has also expanded its patient programs and services. The MHMC Emergency Services launched a fleet of six ambulances and three support vehicles. The Outpatient Physician's Center has increased the number of ambulatory services provided, providing patients with specialized care in one convenient location.
MHMC is accredited by DNV, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the American Diabetes Association, the American College of Radiology, and the Medical Society of New Jersey. Memberships include the American Hospital Association, the New Jersey Hospital Association, and the Hudson Perinatal Consortium. Meadowlands Hospital is certified by the ACR with the highest ratings in Ultrasound, CT, MRI, and Mammography, making it one of only a few select hospitals with these four national certifications and by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments.
