The Trauma Center

At Weill Cornell Medicine, we stand ready to provide the full spectrum of care for the most severely injured and critically ill patients, from the first minutes after an injury through treatment and rehabilitation. The center, which is under the leadership of Robert J. Winchell, MD, follows the most stringent policies, and is equipped to provide patients with state-of-the-art therapies at the bedside, including

  • Designated Trauma Center: New York-Presbyterian Hospital has a Level 1 Trauma Program at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Our Trauma Center is able to provide complete care for every aspect of injury, from prevention through treatment and recovery.
  • Exceptional Resources: We have the largest private EMS system in the region, providing emergency response through the 9-1-1 system. Patients have access t our full-service Emergency Departments; multidisciplinary healthcare teams featuring world-renowned experts, and the most modern intensive care and diagnostic services. As soon as we learn that a victim of trauma is en route to us, we assemble a specially trained, designated trauma team to diagnose the patient's condition and customize a plan of care. Our team evaluates the patient using carefully developed trauma protocols. This systematic assessment maximizes our abilities to identify all injuries and determine the most appropriate and critical therapies.
  • A team at the Ready: Our trauma and critical care experts are specially trained to address multiple organ system injuries and high –risk surgical cases. Around the clock, we stand ready to answer any call from any part of the hospital where patients need expert critical care.
  • Surgical Intensive Care Units: Our Surgical Intensive Care Units (SICUs) are staffed by highly experienced critical care surgeons and nurses, complemented by skilled respiratory therapists and other healthcare professionals trained to care for very ill patients and victims of severe trauma. We follow the most stringent infection control policies and are equipped to provide patients with state-of-the-art therapies at the bedside. Our patient outcomes are among the best in the nation.
