Quality Care For Women And Expectant Mothers Extends Our Commitment To The Community
At Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center (MHMC), our commitment to quality care and patient safety extends to the vast array of obstetrics and gynecology (Women's Health) services for women and infants. Our expansive program provides the Meadowlands community with access to the region’s most respected women’s health, maternity, obstetric physicians and specialists.
Women's Health services at MHMC begin with our Women’s Healthcare Group, serving patients who need both normal and high-risk obstetrical care. The group offers a private and relaxed atmosphere that puts our patients more at ease and makes their visit less stressful. Our comprehensive and professional services treat issues ranging from contraception to female dysfunction and infertility, from adolescent gynecology to menopause, and a host of additional treatments for related medical conditions. Working closely with the hospital’s perinatology unit, the group’s skilled physicians provide a wide range of minimally invasive procedures, including laparoscopic and robotic surgery, pelvic ultrasound, endometrial ablation, and more.
MHMC Maternal Fetal Medicine department provides comprehensive services to patients of any age, with high-risk pregnancies and their unborn babies. Our perinatologist and experienced sonographers provide individualized, ongoing care to each patient, including non-stress tests, Level II ultrasounds, amniocentesis, genetic counseling, and refer them to more specialized services as needed.
The Maternity Services department at MHMC believes expectant mothers should have a beautiful experience from pregnancy through childbirth. Our unique combination of board-certified physicians and maternity specialists, caring and efficient nurses, and state-of-the-art technology ensures babies who come into the world at Meadowlands are born happy and healthy. The department’s centralized monitoring system allows nurses and physicians to watch labor patterns and the baby’s heart rate, and two fully equipped Operating Rooms (with 24-hour physician and anesthesia coverage) are available to facilitate Cesarean births and high-risk vaginal deliveries.
Our five private birthing suites are spacious and designed to meet the needs of mom and baby, and our 26 postpartum suites offers private rooms designed to help new mothers and their families bond with the newborn. All suites have recently been renovated, offering the latest technology and a soothing, comfortable décor. For premature and high-risk babies, MHMC operates an Intermediate (Level II) Nursery covered by board-certified neonatologists and skilled nurses. All nurses are certified and trained in educating new parents. To help celebrate the new arrival, MHMC also offers new parents a Candlelight Dinner for Two created by our in-house gourmet chefs. Parents select from a specially designed menu and champagne accompanies this distinctive meal.
For all Women's Health services, our delivery of care and practice standards are based upon the standards instituted by American College of Obstetrics Gynecology, the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), and the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). Our investment in maternity services shows our commitment to the mothers and the nearly 900 babies welcomed into the Meadowlands community this past year.
