Mount Sinai Queens provides around-the-clock emergency medical services to patients seeking medical attention each year. Our hospital is among the best in the area for treating stroke and cardiac cases. Orthopaedic injuries, infections, abdominal ailments, breathing problems (including asthma), and all emergencies are expertly and compassionately treated by our skilled, board certified emergency attending physicians and medical teams of physician assistants and nurses certified in emergency medicine.
We are well-equipped to care for the most serious life-threatening emergencies such as heart attacks and stroke. Mount Sinai Queens is designated by the New York State Department of Health and certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center and is the only hospital in Queens to receive this coveted distinction. Our award-winning stroke team is on hand 24/7 to assess patients suspected of having a stroke and to provide life-saving treatments that can minimize long-term damage. Cardiac patients receive rapid response from our expert medical teams who, when necessary, work closely with Mount Sinai Heart, a short distance away in Manhattan, recognized as one of the world’s leading centers for advanced cardiovascular medicine.
At Mount Sinai Queens, we focus on the entire patient. We strive to alleviate pain, fear, and anxiety and seek to minimize the stress that patients and their families may experience in an emergency situation. We work diligently to explain medical issues to patients and families in understandable terms as we update the condition of patients and provide a clear and understandable treatment plan. To further enable us to care for our neighbors, Mount Sinai Queens is embarking on an expansion project that will see the emergency department grow to nearly five times its current size by 2016.
