Private Accommodations

NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell offers suites and private rooms for patients on most units for an additional cost. Private suites offer the look and feel of a fine hotel in a fully functional hospital room. Greenberg 14 South features 20 luxurious single-bed patient rooms and offers personalized services, including a business center and chef-prepared meals.

Please contact the Admitting Department at (212) 746-4250 or let your physician know if you are interested in private accommodations. You will be billed for the difference in cost between a semi-private and private room. Normally, insurance plans do not cover the additional charge.

If a semi-private room is not available, you may be assigned to a private room but will not be charged a private room rate. If a semi-private room becomes available, you will have the option of moving to a semi-private room or electing to stay in the private room for an additional private room charge.

Private Duty Nursing (212) 746-4091

Private duty nurses and companions may be hired through the Private Duty Nursing Office, located in K-02 on the “B” level of the main Hospital building. The Private Duty Nursing Office is open seven days a week from 7 am to 9 pm. After hours, please call the Private Duty Nursing Office and the On-Call Coordinator will assist you.

Private duty nurses and companions are not employed by the Hospital. Their fees will be quoted to you when you call the office. Payment can be made by credit card at the Private Duty Nursing Office.
