We are very proud to share with you what our patients say about Meadowlands Hospital... readmore

“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!”
— Amanda R., Meadowlands Hospital HCAHPS/Postpartum Patient, February 2017

Our Services and Procedures
Not every colonoscopy is equal. Learn how to prepare and why do you need one:

Water Immersion Colonoscopy – It is an alternative colonoscopy technique that increases the success rate of minimal sedation. Use of this technique leads to a decrease in discomfort; time to reach the cecum, and the amount of sedatives and analgesics used without compromising patient satisfaction.

Upper Endoscopy – This allows your doctor examine the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.

Colon Cancer Screening – Early detection is a key to fighting colon and rectal cancers. Screening should begin at age 50. However, African-Americans should be screened for colorectal cancer beginning at age 45.

Colon Polypectomy – This is removal of one or more polyps from the inside lining of the colon. A polyp
is a mass of tissue that has the potential to develop into cancer. Most polyps can be removed during a colonoscopy.

Video Capsule Endoscopy – This is patient-friendly tool for visualization of the entire small bowel and is the standard of care for detecting small bowel abnormalities.
