Emergency Medical Services
Mount Sinai Health System’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) operates 911 ambulances 24/7 throughout New York City, as well as a neonatal/pediatric critical care transport ambulance to serve the Health System’s needs. Our efforts are integrated throughout the Mount Sinai Health System. We value quality of care, safety, innovation, compassion, and respect for the communities we serve.
Emergency Medical Services is also involved with the Mount Sinai Health System Community Paramedicine Program, which enables patients to receive evaluation and care at home when medically appropriate.
We also implemented the Emergency Triage, Treat, and Transport Program, which offers telehealth services to select patients who call 911 with low-acuity injuries and conditions. Both of these programs provide patients with the support they need while providing patient- centered care. The programs also benefit the Health System by making beds available for patients who truly need hospital-level care.
