“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

It’s Not Too Late To Get A Flu Shot

Here at Meadowlands Hospital we are very serious about vaccinating people for Influenza (Flu). It is a nasty disease that tends to last about 8 months throughout the year in most places. As common as the flu may be, this doesn’t make it any safer. Many people die every year from this illness, which is why getting vaccinated is very important. According to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) mortality surveillance data available on December 31, 2014, 7.2% of the deaths occurring during the week ending December 13, 2014 (week 50) were due to Pneumonia & Influenza. Our medical experts are saying that the disease is running it’s course longer and affecting more people this season than in recent years, which is another reason to get a vaccination as soon as possible.

If you have not already done so, make sure getting the flu shot is at the top of your list. Given that vaccinations are distributed before the flu season starts, most people think it is pointless or too late to get one once the season has taken effect. Don’t wait before it hits you, make your appointment at Meadowlands Hospital and get protected from this dangerous disease. Here are some reasons why you should get the shot ASAP.

Flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches and fatigue. There are other viruses that can cause these symptoms, but a high fever and bad cough usually indicate flu.

To keep our community healthy and safe, Meadowlands Hospital will be providing free of charge flu shots on the following days (for adults 18+):

Monday, January 12th, 2015 – 9:30 am to 4:00 pm
