Ever since Hudson Regional Hospital in Secaucus opened its doors two years ago, the full-service, community-based institution has been dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive care to patients throughout northern New Jersey, attracting top-notch talent in the area, investing in the most updated, cutting-edge technology, and building a healthier community. And the industry has noticed.
In a 2020 survey by Castle Connolly, America’s trusted source for identifying Top Doctors and Top Hospitals through an exhaustive and independent process of peer nomination, research, review and screening, Hudson Regional Hospital ranked among the top facilities in the state (with 350 beds or fewer) and in a dozen different categories, including the treatment and care of hip and knee replacement, congestive heart failure, pain management, and high-risk pregnancy and birth.
As part of Castle Connolly’s extensive outreach and vetting process, all hospitals in the state were invited to participate in the survey and some 1,000 licensed physicians ultimately cast nearly 8,000 votes for the 15 hospitals they perceived as doing the best job regarding overall care as well as treatment of a range of specific and prominent medical conditions. As revealed by survey results, Hudson Regional Hospital also received top rankings in communication by physicians and nurses, post-discharge ratings by patients, cleanliness of facilities, and as a Top Hospital overall.
“We’re extremely proud and honored to have been recognized as a Top Hospital in the state in so many categories,” said Nizar Kifaieh, MD, MBA, CPE, FACEP, president and CEO of Hudson Regional Hospital. “These top rankings truly reflect and help validate the strength of our efforts to be a center of medical excellence and deliver a best-in-class patient experience for area residents.”
Providing A Best-In-Class Experience
With hundreds of top-notch, experienced physicians on staff and investments in the most advanced medical technologies, including the Mazor X Stealth, Globus ExcelsiusGPS, Stryker Mako, and da Vinci Xi-branded robotic-assisted surgical systems as well as a state-of-the-art open MRI, “we’re driving great outcomes in a number of areas, including orthopaedics, cardiology, allergy and immunology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, and much more,” Dr. Kifaieh said. “Our in-network participation in numerous insurance and managed-care plans and convenient location in the heart of New Jersey meet patients’ needs for affordability and accessibility and obviate the need for them to travel to New York City to receive exceptional medical care.”
“People in our communities should not have to — and now do not have to — travel into Manhattan to obtain the benefits provided by cutting-edge technology and expert surgeons,” continues Dr. Kifaieh. “We’re bringing the most demonstrated expertise and latest advances to patients right here in the community.”
“At Hudson Regional Hospital, we’ve additionally invested significant energy and resources in hiring the most talented nursing staff and in supporting our full staff with continuing education and training programs, all of which are having positive impacts throughout the entire hospital,” said Hudson Regional Hospital Medical Director Jihad Moukdad, MD. “We’re also excited about all of the physical improvements underway throughout the hospital, which will benefit patients, staff, and visitors alike.”
“Overall,” agreed Dr. Kifaieh, “we’re committed to providing the best of what a great community hospital offers – in terms of patient-centric, high-quality, compassionate care in a convenient and attractive setting – along with outstanding medical and surgical services typically found only at major medical centers.” Hudson Regional Hospital is in-network with most insurances.
“We combine highly skilled providers, great patient outcomes, patient-friendly private rooms, and the utmost in modern technology to deliver a best-in-class patient experience,” Dr. Kifaieh said of Hudson Regional Hospital’s exciting transformation and elite industry recognition. “As an institution, we’re extremely proud to be recognized as a Top Hospital in New Jersey and will continue to work tirelessly to provide superior care to patients and families and to meet and exceed our community’s health care needs.”
