Our Patients Receive the Best of Care
At Hackensack University Medical Center, quality means always striving to deliver the best medicine to our patients. Patients are surrounded by the entire spectrum of medical resources that are available only at a major medical center. It means always re-evaluating the delivery of healthcare to ensure that high standards are achieved. It means never turning away from a community need, but instead redoubling our efforts and commitment to respond to those needs.
Our medical center campus includes one of the largest ambulatory facilities in the country: the Hackensack University Medical Plaza. This nine-story, 276,000-square-foot facility houses physician offices and medical center programs. The building offers valet parking and door-to-door service.

Re-evaluating the Delivery of Healthcare
Body contouring procedures should be considered only after one’s weight has stabilized after a bariatric procedure. This can take from 12 to 24 months, depending on the individual’s preoperative weight and the bariatric procedure they have undergone.
Breast reduction surgery is usually done to provide relief from the pain, improper posture, rashes, breathing problem, skeletal deformities, and low self-esteem that can be caused by large breasts. This two-to-four hour procedure, performed under general anesthesia, results in smaller, lighter breasts that are in a healthier proportion to the rest of the body.
