These features prevent team member exposure to infectious diseases and reduce PPE usage by limiting the number of times a nurse must enter a patient’s room. During non-pandemic times, they also improve the overall patient experience by reducing disruptions to sleep and conversations with family.

“Our community depends on us, and we want members of the communities we serve to know that we have the technology and expertise to provide the most advanced, compassionate care they need in a comfortable environment, when they need it most,” said Mark Sparta, FACHE, president, Northern Region, and president and chief hospital executive, Hackensack University Medical Center.

“As a colorectal surgeon, I’ve spent my life working in hospitals,” said Howard Ross, M.D., colorectal surgeon and Chair of Surgery/Surgeon-in-Chief at Hackensack University Medical Center. “The Pavilion is unmatched in terms of design, technology and patient experience — and from the operating rooms to the patient rooms to the family and visitor areas, it’s an environment that promotes leading-edge care, healing and well-being.”

While the unexpected trip to the hospital was not at all how Jessica planned to close 2022, she says she’s thankful she chose Hackensack University Medical Center for her care. “I’ve been in hospitals before, and nothing else compares, the new Pavilion truly is impressive and it is because of its technology that I was able to get back home as quickly as I did.”
