We are open.
We are clean.
We are ready.

Holy Name Medical Center is happy to announce that we have begun our return to normal operations. You may wonder, Is the hospital safe? Yes. We are ready. Ready to partner with you and your family on all your healthcare needs.

Holy Name is the first hospital in North Jersey to complete a rigorous, deep cleaning of our 450,000 square feet of clinical and non-clinical space. We started with manual disinfection, then applied electrostatic sanitizing mist, and finally, blasted UV-C light to kill more than 30 types of pathogens — including Covid-19.

Symptoms & Risk Factors


At times, appendix cancer causes no symptoms and may be detected through a routine colonoscopy. When symptoms do appear, they may include some but not all of the following:

  • Appendicitis, an inflammation of the appendix
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal pain or discomfort, particularly on the lower right side of the abdomen
  • Ovarian mass

Risk Factors

  • Age – the average age of diagnosis is 40
  • Smoking
  • Family history – people with a relative that has had appendix cancer of certain endocrine syndromes
  • Medical history – people with a history of medical conditions that affect the stomach's ability to produce acid have a higher risk for appendix cancer
  • Male – men are more likely to develop adenocarcinoma
  • Female – women are more likely to develop carcinoid tumors
