Daniel G. Murphy, MD, MBA
Chairman, Department of Emergency Medicine
Welcome! to the Department of Emergency Medicine at SBH Health System.
St. Barnabas Hospital, which is a part of SBH Health System, is a 461-bed, not-for-profit, nonsectarian, acute care community hospital. In addition, SBH is also a NY State-designated Stroke Center, AIDS Center and Trauma Center.
We are dedicated to serving our diverse and dynamic Bronx community. Our residency program is well known for graduating excellent emergency physicians. Our campus is beautiful and our location enables a direct commute from Manhattan, Queens, New Jersey, Long Island, Westchester, Connecticut and the Hudson Valley. We are also on the southwest corner of the renowned Arthur Avenue restaurant district. Fordham University, the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo are just minutes away.
We look forward to meeting you!
Marianne Haughey, MD
Program Director, Emergency Medicine Residency
Congratulations on taking the next step in your career in emergency medicine!
We are very excited for you to explore and learn about emergency medicine at SBH Health System. We are a large urban ED with an annual census of over 90,000 patients, and a level II ACS certified Trauma Center in the Bronx. Both blunt and penetrating traumas are well-represented in our census. In addition, we have a very active bedside toxicology consult service run by our two board-certified medical toxicologists, as well as an RDMS-certified and fellowship-trained ultrasound director. All of our faculty members are active and committed to resident education. The emergency medicine residency is a fundamental pillar of the hospital and has been educating residents for over 25 years. It is a great place to learn with exposure to all of the illnesses and problems that practicing physicians see in both urban and community settings.
The solid educational experience at St Barnabas is getting even more dynamic. As a new program director, with 20 years of experience in emergency medicine residency education, I am excited to work with the faculty, administration and the educational leadership at SBH. We have achieved pre- accreditation status with the submission of the ACGME application as well as continuing AOA accreditation. As we approach full ACGME approval, we are re-evaluating the curriculum and searching for ways to make a good system even better. There are opportunities abound in our new role as the core clinical site for the brand new CUNY School of Medicine, in addition to our academic affiliation with NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine. Osteopathy has been an integral component of our history and education, and we plan on continuing the incorporation of osteopathic skills and knowledge as we transition.
Our location is ideal. SBH is located in an area that allows exposure to a dynamic population in need of good medical care, while also providing access to truly ill trauma patients. Additionally, the cultural and social benefits of the Bronx and the rest of NYC are all a short distance away. Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and the suburbs of NYC are all readily accessible through public transportation and have an inexhaustible array of activities to satisfy whatever you enjoy.
The SBH Emergency Medicine Residency has educational opportunities that are abundant and a superb and experienced faculty. We are also lucky to attract excellent residents who are accomplished and who are learning and contributing on a daily basis. If you are interested in becoming one of those residents, we are interested in meeting you. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and for you to know us.
