Shades of pink and blue, perfect for the new baby or two! The Sandra Kissler Women’s Shop caters to the newborn with gift items to mark the occasion of a new arrival.

A thoughtful gift of chocolate, fresh flowers, greeting cards, magazines, and stuffed animals will bring cheer to our patients. New mothers may also use the services of the Medela Rental Breast Pump Station.

The Green Caboose Thrift Shop
Located at 86 Orchard Street in Hackensack

The Green Caboose thrift shop sells donated items such as gently used clothing, jewelry, children’s toys and books, holiday items, and a broad selection of household articles. There is always a surprise or two among the spacious rows of merchandise.

Founded by the HackensackUMC Auxiliary and originally housed in the historic Anderson Street train station since 1962, the thrift shop became an integral part of the community. In January 2009, it was destroyed in a fire.

The Green Caboose now continues its services in its new home on Orchard Street where it not only produces income for the medical center but provides two important services to the community: previously owned items are given a new lease on life; and those looking to clean out attics and basements have an ideal donation destination.

Donations are accepted Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. For additional information, please call 201-487-1462.


Gift Shop volunteers stock shelves, use a cash register, and help visitors and patients with shopping.

The Plaza Pharmacy at Hackensack University Medical Center is a full-service retail pharmacy that provides prescription and over-the-counter medications, medical supplies, sundries, and other merchandise for patients and employees of the medical center.

  • Highly skilled registered pharmacists, who have years of experience counseling patients, interfacing with physicians, and filling and compounding prescriptions.
  • Convenient hours and location that make it easy for you to fill all your pharmacy needs in one place.
  • Effortless prescription filling. Whether you are an employee, a patient just being discharged from the hospital, or are in need of outpatient pharmacy services, we will fill your prescriptions efficiently and have them ready as you leave the medical center. Prescriptions can be called in, faxed, or sent to us by the medical center’s internal pneumatic tube system. We will then fill them and deliver them right to your hospital room or employee location— saving you time.
  • Extensive and specialty inventory. Because we are intimately familiar with the prescription patterns of our doctors at the medical center, we stock the most common medications and compounds they prescribe. We also stock medications for specialty services not found at regular pharmacies, including prescriptions for patients undergoing stem cell transplantation or infertility treatment. Since we communicate regularly with the medical center’s physicians, we can stock new medications as they become available and can fill special orders by request.
  • Most major insurance plans, including Medicare D and workers’ compensation plans, are accepted.
  • Personalized patient services, including private consultations to help fill in the gaps of information you might want to know about your medications.
