Giving Tuesday (November 27th) is a global day of giving – it reminds us to get in the holiday spirit by helping out family, friends, colleagues and communities.
Connexient co-founders Mark Green and Joe Motta partnered with their colleagues at Hackensack Meridian Health to deliver 1,000 compassionate compression kits to patients. Each kit includes a pair of stylish compression socks, an eye mask and ear plugs. Compression socks are great post-operation and during treatment as they increase circulation, decrease swelling and reduce the risk of blood clots.
“We wanted to do something meaningful for those who won’t be home for the holidays this year,” said Connexient co-founder and president, Joe Motta. “By giving patients at Hackensack University Medical Center compassionate compression kits, we’re hopefully providing comfort during their treatment and recovery.”

Connexient provides indoor GPS for the Hackensack University Medical Center Campus, and is rolling out across the Hackensack Meridian Health network.. Finding your way through massive hospitals and medical centers can be stressful. Not to mention, getting lost can result in late or missed appointments, a problem that costs hospitals over $150B annually in the US. Connexient’s MediNav™ patient experience solution provides true turn-by-turn indoor navigation and works like Google Maps or Waze but for indoors. Now, patients, visitors and staff have an indoor guide on their phone to help them reach their destination.
