Emergency Services

Through the collaborative efforts of physicians, nurses and other members of the healthcare team, the Emergency Department at Nyack Hospital is one of our nation’s best for safety, quality of care and patient satisfaction.

For the second year in a row, Nyack Hospital is a proud recipient of both the NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System’s Quality Symposium Award and Quality Signature Award.   These prestigious awards recognize our Hospital’s success in transforming its Emergency Department, reducing patient wait times, and minimizing to near zero of the number of patients who decide to leave without being seen. 

Nyack Hospital has made long wait times a thing of the past by introducing a 30-Minute ER Service Standard.  Overcrowding and long wait times in hospital emergency rooms are familiar problems, but patients who arrive at Nyack Hospital’s Emergency Room have medical care initiated within 30 minutes of arrival

The Emergency Department is a New York State Certified Stroke Center, an Area Trauma Center and features ExpressCare for patients with minor injuries or illnesses as well as The Herbert and Edythe Kurz Pediatric Emergency Room. 

No one plans on visiting the Emergency Department, but it’s nice to know that when emergencies happen, we're here to help.  At Nyack Hospital, your emergency is our emergency.
