The David B. Kriser Department of Emergency Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center is a full-service emergency department that supports Beth Israel Medical Center’s wide range of primary care, and medical/surgical specialties and sub-specialties.
The hospital treats more than 100,000 patients a year in its Emergency Department (ED), located just blocks from Union Square. The hospital specializes in treating patients of stroke, heart attack, broken bones, acute asthma and psychiatric emergencies.
The hospital also runs a separate pediatric emergency department—for children up to age 17 offering specialized medical services, privacy and support.
Despite being an emergency department in New York City, one of the busiest cities in the world, Beth Israel has pledged to create a calm and comfortable patient experience, while delivering state-of-the art emergency medical care.
In support of these goals, the hospital renovated its facility in 2010, which included the construction of a new physical space, in addition to workflow changes and enhancements to staffing to optimize teamwork and continuity of care. Click here for more details about our changes.
