The Medical Staff Services department is the first step for physicians who are interested in joining the Meadowlands Hospital family. This department is responsible for awarding access privileges and credentialing for the over 320 physicians and allied health professionals already affiliated with our hospital, as well as new incoming medical staff members. We follow credentialing standards mandated by the federal government, state government and regulatory agencies, including the National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organization (NIAHO).
With the ever-changing landscape of healthcare, we understand the importance of maintaining current and valid credentials plus keeping abreast of new legislation.
Our Medical Staff Coordinator insures that our physician files are kept up to date. She alerts them to new regulations when they change. For new physicians and staff, she assists them during the application process to ensure their information is accurate and valid.
This is important not only for our physicians, but most important for our patients. Credentialing guarantees that our physicians are highly qualified professionals in whom our patients can place their complete trust and confidence.
Additionally, our Physician Referral Service is available every day from 9am to 5pm. We provide contact information for physicians with a variety of specialized practices, who are conveniently located for the prospective patients.
Medical Staff office hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
