“I came to the Meadowlands Hospital experiencing massive convulsion…thank god I found the best place. Nurses were at the very top in knowing what was wrong with me at probably the worst moments of my life. Doctors were very understanding and were able to make fast decisions and to use tools that resulted in decreased levels of extraordinary pain. The Registration Clerk was fast and effective. I have received care when I most needed. Here I received better care than in larger hospitals in the area. I would recommend this hospital whenever I have the opportunity to do so. God Bless You!”

“Nurse Chelline Lichtenberger at the Meadowlands Hospital was the best nurse I have ever dealt with. She was immediately on top of everything I asked for. Aides Idelle Carter and Delfi Lopez were very good. Staff provided my wife with meals – very thoughtful.”
