NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull marked the completion of a major modernization and expansion of their emergency department (ED). The expansion added 5,000 square feet of space that included 16 additional exam rooms, a new and improved state-of-the-art nurse’s station, a new isolation room, and a “transition hub”, where patients who are being discharged from the ED are linked to a primary care or specialty service follow up visit, can receive consultation regarding their medications, and access care management services.

“The expansion of our ED will allow us to provide more efficient patient care, decrease wait times, reduce the likelihood of patients leaving without being seen, and improve the overall patient experience. This significant improvement will help us accomplish our vision of being a model hospital and hospital of choice for North Brooklyn,” said NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull CEO Gregory Calliste.
