Emergency Care - SBH Health System

Emergency Care

A hospital emergency department is more than a clinical unit.  It is a portal to the hospital and a place for answers, reassurance, social interaction and refuge 24 hours a day.  Illness, injury and despair don’t care what time or day it is.  And, there are no weekends or holidays.

Our goal is to make the SBH Department of Emergency Medicine the best of its kind in the Bronx.  This means not only providing excellent medical care, but making sure patients get in and out of the emergency department as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The Department of Emergency Medicine is a full-service department, providing 24-hour expert emergency care to 100,000 patients annually. Patients are treated by career emergency physicians, each of whom is residency trained and board eligible/certified in the specialty of emergency medicine, assisted by a highly qualified and caring group of emergency nurses and technical personnel.

The Department’s diagnostic and therapeutic equipment is state-of-the-art, and we have a “Fast Track” area, separate Pediatric Emergency Department for patients under the age of 18, and a trauma resuscitation wing. We are also home to the largest emergency medicine residency training program in New York, preparing future experts for practice in the field of emergency medicine.

St. Barnabas Hospital is a designated 911-receiving hospital, a regional trauma center, an emergency heart care center, and the first hospital in the Bronx to be designated as a Stroke Center. From the newborn to the elderly to everyone in between, patients are treated with the same level of compassion and expertise, regardless of their medical problems or ability to pay.
