Welcome to the Division of Emergency Medicine. We provide state-of-the-art emergency care to all patients, and we teach residents from all specialties how to provide that care. At NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, we see more than 85,000 patients annually, with more than 20,000 subsequently admitted to inpatient services. Patient care is provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to adults and children who present with undiagnosed complaints, covering the entire spectrum of undifferentiated illnesses. We are a designated 911 Receiving Hospital, a Level I Trauma Center, a Psychiatric Emergency Receiving (9.39) Center, a Burn Center for the City of New York, a Chest Pain Center accredited by the Society of Chest Pain Centers and a designated Stroke Center. Additionally, we are credited with launching the nation's first geriatric emergency medicine fellowship training program and opening the first geriatric emergency department in the New York metropolitan area. Our disaster preparedness includes extensive Hazmat, and we provide biological and chemical decontamination and treatment facilities. We also receive, evaluate, and stabilize patients who are transferred to us from all over the world. For further information, please visit our web site at nypemergency.org.
