Department of Emergency Medicine Clinical Services
At NYU Langone’s Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine, we treat our patients the way we treat each other—like family. We promote positive health outcomes by providing patient-centered, highly reliable clinical services to the more than 500,000 adults and children we care for annually across our sites.
We provide emergency, observation, and inpatient services at NYU Langone’s Ronald O. Perelman Center for Emergency Services, NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, and emergency services at NYU Langone Health—Cobble Hill, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue.
Additionally, we are partnered with the NYC Poison Control Center, assisting people with emergencies related to exposure to toxic agents or possible poisoning, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our medical teams collaborate across NYU Langone sites and emergency medicine divisions, including specialists in the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, who staff the KiDS Emergency Department, and members of the Division of Observation Medicine, who oversee the largest dedicated observation unit in the country.
Our Clinical Sites
Our emergency departments (EDs) are 911 receiving centers, certified stroke and ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) receiving centers, and designated trauma centers. Our ED faculty physicians, residents, and staff are dedicated to providing the highest-quality care to all patients in our EDs and observation or inpatient units. Our medical teams remain involved with patients through discharge and follow-up care.
We continue to expand access to services and enhance the convenience of doctor consultations through our evolving virtual health programs. We are also developing our urgent care network to better meet the demands of our patients and our communities. As we grow across all of our sites, we aspire to lead the transformation of emergency care by promoting health and wellness among our diverse populations of patients, their caregivers, and the broader community.

NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue
In volume, variety, urgency, and complexity, Bellevue offers a rich array of medical and human challenges. The result is a uniquely rewarding clinical setting for the training of medical students, interns, residents, and fellows.
As the core site for NYU Langone’s training programs, Bellevue is the primary location for clinical instruction, and is also a significant research hub. Our medical students complete much of their third-year clinical clerkship at Bellevue, and many fourth-year students complete subinternships and participate in clinical electives here. Residents in emergency medicine, internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, and psychiatry rotate through Bellevue’s EDs.
Bellevue’s modern facilities include a microsurgery center, a regional center for brain and spinal cord injuries, and comprehensive pediatric services. Bellevue also boasts the nation’s largest array of behavioral health programs, and its psychiatric services are world-renowned.
Bellevue’s ED—the only Level 1 Trauma Center below 68th Street in Manhattan—is an internationally recognized model for emergency medicine development. It has received numerous awards, including a Cardiovascular Center of Excellence designation for comprehensive cardiac care from the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, an American Heart Association Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center Silver-level performance award, a Patient Safety Champion Award for Sepsis Performance, and recognition for having the lowest risk-adjusted mortality rate for sepsis in New York state among hospitals with more than 50 cases annually.
NYC Poison Control Center
As one of the first poison control centers in the country, the NYC Poison Control Center was instrumental in establishing methods whereby poisoning information could be offered as a service to healthcare professionals and the public. In 1955, the center received 2,908 calls; in 1973, 37,000 calls; in 1979, 57,285 calls; and in 2018, the volume exceeded 80,000 calls.
