“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!”

MHMC is now healing wounds in half the time

20 March 2012

Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center today announced it is using MIST Ultrasound Therapy for wound care. The innovative treatment option provides patients a pain-free alternative to address non-healing wounds through the use of no-impact, low frequency, ultrasound waves delivered through saline spray. The dynamic quality of the energized, micro-droplets stimulate healing at the cellular level.

Ultrasound waves stimulate dormant cells to continue their normal healing process. The treatment also pushes against the bacteria found in all wounds, breaking down the rigid bacterial walls which slow healing. And finally, the gentle sound waves vibrate to clean out the sticky yellow slough found in many non-healing wounds. Treatment is delivered within five to ten minutes through a series of sessions based on the size and intensity of the wound. Overall, time to healing is reduced by half and risk to chronic or worsening conditions is alleviated.

Wound care most often involves older patients and the costs for treating chronic wounds are rising. The center’s adoption of the new therapy addresses fiscal responsibility. Efficient patient care is at the heart of our practice. Finding a therapy we can administer painlessly, at a low cost, and which reduces healing time by half, delivers on our objective to provide the highest standards in patient care. Over 90 million patients are treated annually for wound conditions across the United States. Finding a solution that stimulates the body’s natural healing process makes the most sense for us.

Causes of non-healing wounds:

  • Poor blood flow
  • Diabetes
  • Pressure
  • Poor nutrition
  • Infection (high levels of bacteria)
  • Inflammation

Wounds, which cause pain hinder your daily tasks and have not healed for 14 days or more should be examined by a health care professional. Patients should understand the risk factors, which contribute to non-healing wounds and seek help for wounds on arms, legs and toes to avoid chronic conditions.
