HealthGrades

EM Excellence Award


Our department was recently named one of only 2 New York City metro-area EDs to receive the HealthGrades EM Excellence award recognizing the quality of our ED care.  You will also see our EM physicians on the sidelines of the New York Giants football games since our institution is the official hospital for the New York Giants.

The Face of Teamwork


On May 13, 2015, Scott Solomon was driving on the Garden State Parkway when his vehicle flipped several times and landed on its side. Scott suffered severe facial injuries. The crew from AirMed One respond to transport Scott to Hackensack University Medical Center. His injuries were so severe that paramedics could not lie Scott down in the helicopter without jeopardizing his ability to breathe. Scott was instead transported by ambulance. When he arrived, the trauma team, led by Sanjeev Kaul, M.D., chief, and John LoCurto, M.D., assistant chief, provided life-saving care to Scott. Hakan Usal, M.D. was then able to reconstruct Scott’s face.

The Gerald Kissler Institute

The Gerald Kissler Institute for Family-Centered Care was created on the foundation that family members and friends play an essential role in the healing of patients. We believe that that family and friends should be included in the care of their loved ones to better understand the caring process, as well as be relieved from their bedside from time to time to take a needed break.
