Why Choose Us

Shorter Wait Times in the Emergency Department

As part of the new Express Care program, visitors to the Emergency Department at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital can now choose to connect virtually with a provider rather than waiting for an in-person evaluation. After initial triage and an in-person medical screening exam upon entering the Emergency Department, eligible visitors can elect to video conference with one of our board-certified Emergency Medicine physicians from Weill Cornell Medicine or Columbia University in a private room. Through Express Care, we are shortening wait times for people who need emergency care and improving patient outcomes.
