NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital has one of the busiest Emergency Departments in Westchester. With a “No Wait” approach, patients skip the waiting room and are immediately assessed.

The Emergency Department’s board-certified doctors, Magnet nurses, New-ER-photo.jpgtechnicians and other providers earn annual national recognition from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association for stroke care, including the 2018 designation of Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite.

Patients benefit from access to the tertiary care and vast resources provided through the NewYork-Presbyterian health system, should they be needed.

Our Emergency Department features:

  • Emergency care treatment areas.
  • Bedside registration.
  • Fast Track area where patients with less urgent cases are treated quickly with little to no wait time.
  • Flat-screen TVs in treatment rooms.
  • Specialty treatment rooms for specific types of emergency care, such as cardiac or pediatric care.
  • Digital X-ray equipment inside the Emergency Department, for rapid imaging and diagnosis.
  • Negative pressure rooms for isolation of patients with serious infectious disease.
  • Flat-screen TVs in treatment rooms.

No Wait Emergency Department

How does a “No Wait” ED (Emergency Department) differ from a traditional one? It’s one where the patient skips the waiting room and is taken directly into a triage room, where they are medically assessed by registered nurses. Portable computers are used to register them as they are being seen by a doctor or nurse. Less critical patients – such as children with cuts and bruises – can be pulled from the mainstream into a Fast Track area where they can receive immediate care.

Radiological Training

The Entergy Emergency Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital is equipped to deal with radiological emergencies that may arise in the event of an incident at Entergy’s Indian Point Nuclear Plant. With a grant from Entergy, the hospital has constructed a decontamination room that can be used in the event that workers are exposed to radiation. Each year, the hospital, Entergy and EMS agencies participate in a radiological preparedness drill to make sure that the hospital is prepared in case of an emergency.
