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.

In the early stages of liver cancer, most people will not have any signs or symptoms. As the disease progresses, individuals may experience:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Pain in the upper abdomen
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Yellow discoloration of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice)
  • White, chalky stools


While some cases of liver cancer can't be linked to any cause, there are known factors that can increase the risk of developing the disease:

  • Chronic infections with hepatitis B or C
  • Cirrhosis
  • Certain inherited liver disease, such as hemochromatosis and Wilson's disease
  • Diabetes

Several tests may be performed to confirm a liver cancer diagnosis including:
