Welcome to the Department of Emergency Medicine at SBH Health System. We are dedicated to serving our diverse and dynamic Bronx community through compassionate care of the highest standards. Our residency program is known nationally for the excellent quality of our emergency physician graduates.
Our beautiful campus and location enable a direct commute from Manhattan, Queens, New Jersey, Long Island, Westchester, Connecticut, and the Hudson Valley. We are located on the southwest corner of the renowned Arthur Avenue restaurant district and just minutes away from Fordham University, the New York Botanical Garden, and the Bronx Zoo.
The St. Barnabas Hospital is a 460-bed acute care hospital. Our Emergency Department is an 80,000 visit/year full-service department, treating both adult and pediatric patients. 70% of hospital admissions pass through our ED first.
Since 1990, several expansions have more than tripled the size of the emergency department, added faculty and resident office space and a resident classroom. Our pediatric emergency department opened in 1999, with another expansion in 2004, which included a trauma bay and expanded radiological services. St. Barnabas Hospital is now a Level II Trauma Center, STEMI center, Stroke center, designated HIV/AIDS center and an ACEP Accredited Geriatric Emergency Department.
Our faculty has grown from humble beginnings in 1990, with only two residency trained emergency physicians, to our current faculty complement of 34 specialty-trained, BC/BE emergency physicians. We are proud to support faculty with fellowship training in Critical Care, Ultrasound, Toxicology, Medical Education, Simulation and Prehospital Care.
We look forward to meeting you!
Daniel G. Murphy, MD, MBA
Chairman, Department of Emergency Medicine
