Emergency Medicine

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.

The New Emergency Department at Mount Sinai Queens

In 2016, Mount Sinai Queens will begin to unveil our new $150-million 140,000-square-foot building, heralding in a new era of health care in Queens. Our new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Emergency Department is among the most anticipated new departments of our state-of-the art facility. The emergency room will be nearly five times the size of the current emergency room and will feature a separate pediatric emergency area within the new Emergency Department, all designed to enable our skilled medical team physicians to examine and treat adults and children promptly and thoroughly in a comfortable environment. Improved patient experience, including reduced wait time, is a top priority.

Additionally, as the only Joint Commission-certified Primary Stroke Center in Queens, Mount Sinai Queens is the first choice for stroke patients.
