While on a mini vacay in Hoboken, my son ended up contracting URI. We took him to the nearest ER which happened to be Hoboken University Medical Center. George had to be in the hospital for nearly a week to get completely cured of it. We were initially worried about getting admitted because it was in a hospital not in our state and we had no clue of anything. However, all our tensions were put to rest by the excellent staff of the hospital. The nurses and the doctors took excellent care of our son; always making sure that not only was he okay but we, his parents, were also comfortable. My son is doing much better now, and it is all due to the wonderful team of nurses and doctors. Thank you, guys, for taking care of our son!
PS: some of the rooms had excellent views. We had a room that which could see NYC skyline, not related, but it sure helps in killing the boredom and putting our lives in perspective.

There are not enough words in the English dictionary that I can use to shower praise on Dr. Boiardo and his great staff at HUMC. Approximately ten days back, we were having lunch when my son slipped and ended up landing awkwardly on his hands, breaking his right hand in the process. Having seen Dr. Boiardo a few years back for treatment of another fracture, we reached out to him to inquire if he could treat my son. As luck would have it, he told us that he was visiting HUMC that day and we could go to the ER and see him. It turns out, my son had a major fracture, and he needed immediate surgery. Dr. B quickly got the team ready for conducting the surgery the following day. He even came in during his scheduled off to perform the surgery and ensure that my son had the best care as he underwent the procedure. The HUMC staff was incredible. They were caring, attentive, but most importantly highly professional. Our family will always remain indebted to Dr. Boiardo for responding so fast to our problem. For any orthopedic surgeries and rehab needs, he is our man. Thank you, Dr. Boiardo!

AVOID!!!!

This place gives out negative vibes. From the moment, my husband and I entered the hospital; we were made to feel as if we were a burden and being rushed. There were not many patients to assume that the staff was very busy. The time I spent here, made me realize that not just the patients, but the staff also did not want to be here.

I recommend avoiding this place to the maximum possible extent.

There are many reviews on various forums about this hospital charging “ginormous fees” for the services rendered. Well, that happens because people tend to use emergency departments as urgent care or as primary care physicians. If you use that, then do not expect normal hospital prices. My two daughters were born here, and we received nothing but excellent care. The bill was also much affordable.
