Emergency Services

The Emergency Department (ED) at Montefiore Medical Center is recognized for its success in handling large volumes of emergency care for all aspects of acute illness and injury, including dental and psychiatric emergencies. We are one of the top five busiest emergency departments in the U.S. and the most visited in the state of New York. Drawing approximately 275,000 visits from adult patients each year from across the region, our dedication to providing excellent emergency services to the surrounding community is unsurpassed. Every individual receives professional, compassionate care, regardless of their ability to pay. Family members are welcome at all times.

Montefiore Medical Center has four adult Emergency Department facilities and also operates a Pediatric Emergency Department at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore. Urgent care services are provided at Montefiore Medical Group Bronx East
