A Message From Our CEO

When HackensackUMC Palisades moved to its current River Road location in 1978, no one knew it would be in the heart of the waterfront restoration.

Today, we stand ready to serve our changing community that includes lifelong residents and those new to the area. Our quality care reaches 400,000 residents in northern Hudson and southern Bergen counties.

As in the past, residents of our community are looking for leadership from HackensackUMC Palisades to bring innovative and progressive solutions to meet their medical needs. Our patients not only value quality health care and emergency treatment, but also expect educational opportunities to enhance their knowledge, enabling them to make the best decisions regarding their health and that of their families.
