HackensackUMC And Complementary Medicine

humcHackensack University Medical Center is committed to providing an environment where patients can complement their medical care with holistic modalities and alternative therapies. Integrating conventional medicine with complementary medicine promotes overall health and enhances healing. Whether your goal is to stay well, heal, achieve relaxation, or nurture a healthy lifestyle, the center offers both individual and group programs to blend complementary modalities into your healthcare plan.

Our commitment to this patient-centered approach is anchored by our affiliation with Plane Tree, a renowned non-profit organization whose holistic approach encourages healing in all dimensions — mental, emotional, spiritual and social, as well as physical. HUMC, the only Planetree affiliate in New Jersey, subscribes to this value-based philosophy that hospitals can best serve its patients, employees, and the community by providing medical care in a nurturing environment.

The Complementary Medicine Program offers stress management programs tailored to specific patient care areas (i.e. oncology, geriatrics, pediatrics, emergency room) so staff members can receive help in dealing with a particular type of patient or situation.
