Located just 8 miles west of Manhattan, HackensackUMC is a nonprofit teaching and research hospital that is the largest provider of healthcare services in the state of New Jersey with 775 inpatient beds.  It is a Level II Trauma Center that sees more than 112,000 patients per year and admits nearly 1,300 trauma patients per year from the Emergency and Trauma Center (ETC).  Annually, more than 36,000 patients visit the Pediatric Emergency Department. HackensackUMC is also a Stroke Center and a STEMI catherization center with full cardiothoracic surgical capabilities.  U.S. News & World Report ranked HackensackUMC #1 overall in the state of New Jersey and #4 in the New York Metropolitan Area in its most recent 2015-16 Best Hospitals rankings. HackensackUMC has been named one of America's 50 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades for nine years in a row placing it in the top one percent nationally. You will also see our emergency medicine physicians on the sidelines of the New York Giants football games since our medical center is the Hometown Hospital for the NY Giants. 
 
In May 2012 we broke ground to renovate the ETC that will include 75 private rooms for our patients.  The new ETC features specialty-specific wings including Geriatrics, Oncology, Cardiology and Trauma care. Our patient population represents a wide range of cultural diversity with patients of all ages, presenting complaints and acuities.  The combination of a thriving, nationally recognized academic institution with a large, diverse volume of patients offers emergency medicine residents an excellent training opportunity.
 
The Department of Emergency Services is run under the direction of Joseph Feldman, M.D., chairman; and Doug Finefrock, D.O., and Kevin Hewitt, M.D., as vice chairmen. As a Regional Trauma Center, there are also attending surgeons specializing in trauma present around the clock. In addition to the physicians, the team comprises staff in the fields of nursing, respiratory care, technicians, consumer affairs; clerical and other support staff, as well as an extensive network of specialists, including plastic surgeons.
 
Beyond the main ETC treatment areas for adults, there are separate areas and staff for:
  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine
  • Prompt Care: For those who need care quickly, but do not need to be amid the activity of the main emergency room. Patients are seen here by certified advanced practitioners.
HackensackUMC also has a Mobile Intensive Care Unit with locations throughout Bergen County, and coordinates the County Mobile Intensive Care Communications Network.
 
Residents also rotate at Englewood Hospital & Medical Center on their Community Emergency Medicine rotation. This allows the residents to have progressive responsibility in patient management and experience in the transfer of patients requiring subspecialty care.  It provides them with a community emergency medicine experience with limited specialty services that is similar to the many community settings that rely upon transfers to obtain subspecialty care.”
