NYU Langone Medical Center Plans Late December Re-Opening For Inpatient Care Services at Main Hospital
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
NYU Langone Medical Center announced that it plans a phased re-opening
of its main clinical facility, Tisch Hospital, prior to the end of
December and a return of nearly all services to the medical center by
the end of January. Additionally, despite significant damage to the
Emergency Department, NYU Langone continues to work towards re-opening
portions of this function as soon as possible. As part of the phased
re-opening effort, approval by the New York State Department of Health
(DOH) is required prior to resuming services and we continue to work
closely with them throughout this process.
"Our entire community has been working tirelessly to get each of our
facilities back up and running, and we will continue to work around the
clock to ensure everyone is back on the main campus as soon as
possible," said Robert
I. Grossman, MD, dean and CEO, NYU Lanone Medical Center. "We
continue to make significant progress in our recovery efforts and are
striving to provide key inpatient services during the month of December."
Significant progress in recovery efforts continue with the recent
re-opening of many temporarily relocated physician offices in their
original locations at the Schwartz Health Care Center (HCC) on the main
campus. For a full list, visit the Faculty
Group Practice site. In addition, the Skirball building (located at
530 First Avenue on the main campus), which houses a variety of
physician offices and hundreds of investigators and researchers at the
Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine, re-opened on November 16.
NYU Langone's Hospital for Joint Diseases (HJD), Center for
Musculoskeletal Care (CMC), Clinical Cancer Center and other offsite
buildings also remain open, many with extended hours of service to
ensure all new and current patients have continued access to care.
NYU School of Medicine's medical education programs have successfully
resumed, and students working towards their medical degrees are making
continued academic progress. Clinical training for students on
clerkships, and residents and fellows has also continued, thanks to the
opening of NYU Langone Medical Center and Bellevue ambulatory
facilities, as well as the generous support and facilitation of many
"The past month has brought many losses and lessons, but it has also
highlighted what I will always remain thankful for-the dedication of the
entire NYU Langone community and our determination to prevail," said Dr.
