“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!”

Tips For Keeping The Dreaded Holiday Weight Gain At Bay During this Holiday Season

Tips From Meadowlands Hospital Dietitian Amy Murray

Don’t go hungry – whether you’re going shopping or getting ready for a party:
make sure you’ve had a good meal or protein-packed snack before you head out. Eating adequate protein will keep you satisfied longer, so you’re ready to face the temptation of holiday treats. Don’t save up your calories for a big meal later in the day. Letting yourself get hungry often leads to cravings and overindulgence later on. Eat as you normally would throughout the day and eat a balanced holiday meal. And don’t deprive yourself – it’s okay to eat a little dessert too!

Stay hydrated – thirst is often confused with hunger, so fill up on water before your next meal. This will help you to avoid overeating and over-snacking. Make a goal of drinking at least 8 cups of water throughout the day.

Going to a potluck? – bring a healthy dish that will help you to stay on track with your diet goals (think lean protein or a side of veggies) – your friends might thank you! Be picky at the buffet table. Choose the foods you really want, and avoid loading your plate with a little bit of everything – that goes for dessert too!
