Care at our Centers of Excellence
The diversity of our practice demonstrates the strength of our profession.
Montefiore-Einstein's Surgical Services Care Center uses exciting new technologies in the liver tumor, kidney and liver transplant, bariatric, and minimally-invasive surgery programs.
Our onsite surgical nursing program offers continuing education credits and opportunities to develop surgical skills in many specialty areas, such as the Montefiore Einstein Center for Heart and Vascular Care.
We encourage our highly skilled pre-, intra- and postoperative nurses to continually develop their skills in the latest clinical procedures.
Medical Center Care
Montefiore-Einstein nurses are recognized as pivotal members of an interdisciplinary team that manages the care of patients in a variety of specialty services.
Our Hospice and Palliative Care programs provide support and advocate for patients and families during the transition from the aggressive treatment phase to the end-of-life phase.
Women and Children Care Centers: Partnering with Families
We understand the powerful impact women have on the health of their family. At Montefiore-Einstein, the Department of Nursing incorporates the full spectrum of care for women at every stage of their lives. Our nurses provide expertise in all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology, including gynecologic oncology and pre- and postmenopausal care.
Neonatal and pediatric care is also provided within the Montefiore system. The nursing team of the Children's Hospital at Montefiore seeks nursing professionals who recognize that children do best when nurses partner with families to educate and collaborate in care delivery.
Montefiore Einstein Center for Heart and Vascular Care
The Montefiore Einstein Center for Heart and Vascular Care has a team of highly skilled and experienced cardiovascular nurses whose expertise includes understanding of the most current developments in cardiovascular intervention, electrophysiology studies, coronary care, telemetry services and cardiothoracic surgery. They work in the most technologically advanced cardiac catheterization laboratories.
Because we provide multidisciplinary care to our heart and vascular patients, our nurses have many opportunities to expand their skills. Notably, Montefiore-Einstein’s groundbreaking clinical research and transplant programs augment the clinical excellence of our cardiothoracic nurses.
Over 100,000 patients are treated annually in the Emergency Department (ED) at our Moses Campus, while the Einstein Campus ED has about 72,000 patient visits. The Pediatric ED at Children's Hospital at Montefiore sees over 58,000 patients and the Wakefield Campus ED numbers more than 59,000 patient visits a year. A freestanding emergency department at Westchester Square has also recently opened.
Montefiore-Einstein nurses provide high-level emergency care for the full spectrum of patients with the innovation, compassion and collaboration that is so critical in the demanding, highly charged atmosphere of an urban emergency department. Our nurses serve as patient advocates and provide substantial education in both acute and chronic care to those released from emergency services to return home.
