NYU Winthrop Hospital has opened its new $6 million Trauma Center, which is Nassau County’s only Trauma Center with full adult and pediatric capabilities. The Hospital held an exciting trauma response demon- stration to show the capabilities of this 7,500-square-foot facility, along with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening.

“NYU Winthrop’s Trauma Center includes 24-hour in-house coverage by trauma-trained surgeons, and prompt availability of care in specialties such as orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, radiology, internal medicine and critical care. It marks the first phase of an expansion project for our Emergency Department to add beds to meet the ever-growing needs of our community,” said John Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop- University Hospital.

“We are proud to be adding to the Emergency Department a designated, state-of-the-art, five-bed trauma receiving unit, with capabilities for managing all types of trauma, including those requiring emergent lifesaving surgical intervention,” said Barry M. Rosenthal, MD, Chairman of Emergency Medicine.

The trauma bays are equipped with leading-edge monitoring, imaging and life support technologies and provide NYU Winthrop’s dedi- cated Trauma team with the highly specialized facilities they need. The new edition frees up Emergency Department space, a benefit for all of NYU Winthrop’s patients and staff.

“The NYU Winthrop Trauma Center is now even more prepared to respond to the highest level of critical injuries,” said Alex Axelrad, MD, Chief of Trauma/Surgical Critical Care/Acute Care Surgery.

“We have always provided superior trauma care. In order to further enhance that care, NYU Winthrop is committed to attaining the American College of Surgeons’ Level 1 Trauma certification, which significantly raises the standards for trauma care,” said Dr. Rosenthal.

Injuries treated in the NYU Winthrop Trauma Center include motor vehicle collisions, falls, violence, drowning, gunshot wounds, fires and burns, and other life-threatening injuries.

Members of the NYU Winthrop community recently gathered to unveil the Hospital’s new Trauma Center, Nassau County’s only Trauma Center that serves both pediatric and adult patients.

A trauma response demonstration brought together members of NYU Winthrop’s highly trained Trauma team to treat a mock patient. The Trauma Center is equipped with special facilities and advanced technology, and features brand new Trauma Resuscitation Bays to care for the most severely injured patients.
