news item

PORT JERVIS, NY (October 5, 2020) – Emergencies don't wait and neither should patients. That's why Bon Secours Community Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), pledges to see its patients in the Emergency Department (ED) in 30 minutes or less.

Patients visiting the ED will be seen by a provider within 30 minutes of check-in. The 30-Minute Pledge applies 24/7 to all patients, including children. "When you're experiencing a medical emergency, the last thing you want to do is wait," said Mary P. Leahy, MD, MHA, CEO, Bon Secours Charity Health System.

"We're proud that our Emergency Department offers a safe and protective environment with wait times under 30 minutes. We are dedicated not only to offering quality care but also to providing that care as efficiently and quickly as possible."

From broken bones to chest pain, emergencies are treated by a team of board-certified physicians, registered nurses, advanced mid-level providers and other specially trained staff.

Seamless Transfer to Westchester Medical Center

If a higher level of care is needed, patients are seamlessly transferred to the Emergency Department at Westchester Medical Center, the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the Hudson Valley Region. Its facilities provide complex, multidisciplinary emergency care 24 hours a day for the most critically injured patients requiring the most advanced intervention available. Services include: Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center, 24-hour MedEvac transport (helicopter and ground), Behavioral Health Emergency Services (24/7) and CT technology and real-time digital radiology.
