Emergency Department

NuHealth’s Emergency Department at Nassau University Medical Center is one of the busiest in the region, and has long been Nassau County’s top destination for victims of accidents and other traumas. As a Level I Trauma Center, we receive more than 50 percent of the area’s most critically injured patients, as well as those with serious, acute medical problems, via ambulance and helicopter. In fact, if the President of the United States was visiting Long Island and experienced a medical emergency, he would be taken to NUMC’s ED.

On June 1, 2011, NuHealth’s new, $55-million-dollar state-of-the-art Emergency Department successfully opened. The new Emergency Department features 32 patient rooms, 2 resuscitation rooms and a large 2-bay trauma room, and the latest in advanced equipment. The new Emergency Department is designed to maximize our ability to provide swift diagnosis and treatment, as well as a better overall patient experience. The new Emergency Department at Nassau University Medical Center is the pride of emergency medicine in the entire region.

In addition to acute medical services, NuHealth’s Emergency Department at Nassau University Medical Center offers:

  • Pediatric and Family Support Services
  • The Coalition Against Domestic Violence
  • Rape Advocacy Program
  • Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner (SAFE) Center of Excellence
  • Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect (SCAN) Unit

Above all, our dedicated staff of physicians, nurses and other medical specialists understand that the day you arrive at our Emergency Department is likely to be one of the worst days of your life. Even though, as in any ED, things can be hectic and it may take longer to be treated than you would like, rest assured that our first priority is the safety and comfort of our patients.

To reach the Emergency Department, please call (516) 296-2100.
