During Your Stay at NewYork-Presbyterian / Columbia University Irving Medical Center

Welcome to NewYork-Presbyterian / Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Here you will find a staff dedicated to always providing the highest quality, most compassionate care and service to each of our patients in a warm and friendly environment.

To help you and your loved ones while you are here in the Hospital, we have developed this During Your Stay guide. It includes information about services and amenities that are available to make you as comfortable as possible. It also provides important information about your healthcare team and what you need to know to prepare for going home. We want you to be an active participant in your own care, and you will find that our staff members encourage you to ask questions and share any concerns that you or your loved ones might have.

NewYork-Presbyterian is one of the most comprehensive academic medical centers in the world, with leading specialists in every field of medicine. We are very proud of the outstanding care we provide. Most importantly, we are proud of our staff’s commitment to taking great care of you and your loved ones.
