My mother went through hell while seeking care here. She is hard of hearing, and in a hurry to get medical attention we forgot hearing aids. My wife had brought my mom there and wanted to stay with her. She informed nurses that my mother was hard of hearing, but the nurses would have none of it and asked her to wait outside. There was a rush, and my mom ended up lying in the gurney for nearly five hours.

She was uncomfortable on the gurney and was slipping down, and my wife was not allowed to help her. Finally, she called me and told the whole thing. When I came down, I was shocked to see that she was lying on the floor. She had slipped and landed on her back. No nurses were there in the vicinity. I rushed in with my wife and then laid her on the gurney.

I asked the nurse how much longer before she would be seen by the doctor…the nurse had no idea. I decided my mother had enough and took her without being seen. I took her to another hospital nearby, which admitted her immediately and provided exceptional care.

Will not be coming back here in this lifetime

My girlfriend and I were down with a fever, throwing up, and general malaise. We decided to seek medical attention at Hackensack Hospital. We were taken in quickly, and the ER doctor diagnosed us with lung infection. He transferred our care to the medical floor. The exceptional care continued even on the floor.

The nurses and doctors were exceptional and took excellent care of us. All of whom we interacted with was friendly and kind. We were very satisfied with the care we got here. The surprise cherry on the pie was the food. It was terrific

Everything about this hospital rocks!!!! It is very welcoming and has positive vibes. I have to say it is one of the cleanest hospitals that I have ever come across. Not just the premises, even the staff who run the show here are exceptional. Every individual whom I interacted during my stay here was terrific. Very professional and highly knowledgeable. The care is outstanding and one would not be left dissatisfied by it.

The surprise package is the food cafeteria. You have a lot of options, even healthy alternatives. Just like the care, the food is also exceptional, and one would feel very satisfied after having it.

Almost forgot…they also have valet parking!!!!
