Emergency Department

Accessible by land, sea, and air, our Emergency Department is open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Our credentialed team of physicians, nurses, and staff exceed New York State standards and are committed to treating your emergency with urgency. All ER nursing staff is Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC) certified. 

For most patients, our ER has one of the shortest wait times in Suffolk County. Specialty-trained staff are available 365 days of the year to treat a full spectrum of patient experiences — from minor cuts to traumatic injuries, and illnesses from the common cold to heart and stroke incidents. 

Every person who comes to the Emergency Department is given appropriate treatment regardless of their ability to pay. Please have your insurance plan’s identification card(s) with you and available so that the hospital may bill your insurance plan directly for you. Please be knowledgeable about your insurance plan’s co-pay amount, deductibles, and other important information when going to the Emergency Department.
