Miracle Amid Hurricane
At 1:17 AM she was delivered into this world, a world that could have easily been dark and cold, but was full of light and warmth due to the back-up generators properly provided by Meadowlands for an occasion such as this. When the power was lost to MHMC and the Secaucus, NJ area, Dr. Miriam Langer, an experienced and passionate health provider and her staff, worked tirelessly against the winds and the early hours to provide a miracle to a mother.
Rachel Nijinimbam and Mathias Shotolu felt blessed and relieved after the whole procedure was over. Now Magdelene will join her older 2 year-old sister Emma, and go back home to Bayonne, NJ safely with her parents.
MHMC has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure these kinds of miracles happen, even when conditions are at their worst. We made sure that everyone who needs medical attention will be as comfortable as possible with extra bedding and emergency provisions. In addition, we had fully staffed and equipped two Alternate Care Sites in West New York and at the Huber Street Elementary School in Secaucus. These two emergency medical centers were set up as part of our commitment to continue providing miracles.
How does MHMC make miracles happen every day? For us, it is simply a combination of professionalism and heart, merging the best doctors with the best equipment, coupled with an incredible maintenance and nursing staff. All miracles need help and Meadowlands delivers everyday, rain or shine.
