Emergency Department

The highly skilled staff of the Mount Sinai Brooklyn Emergency Department (ED) is ready around the clock to provide our community with exceptional pediatric, adult, and geriatric care. With a team of physicians who are board certified in emergency medicine, nurses who specialize in critical care, and consulting specialists in a wide range of areas, we are poised for rapid response at all levels of emergency medicine.

Emergency Services We Provide

Our care begins with a registered nurse, who assesses each patient with a rapid triage procedure. Understanding how frightening an emergency illness or injury can be for patients and loved ones, our providers take the time to fully explain your treatment plan and address any questions you may have.

Our ED is fully equipped to provide the most advanced services, including the following:

  • Acute care
  • Critical care
  • Evaluations
  • Trauma care
  • Triage 
  • Ultrasound (on site)
  • X-ray (on site)

Our ED also offers expedited care for non-emergency cases through our Fast Track program which is designed to give priority treatment to all patients. If you have an ankle sprain, for example, a specialized nurse will immediately expedite your care and get you to a doctor or physician’s assistant. 

If Fast Track patients need tests like blood work or an ultrasound, on-site diagnostics are ordered immediately and our radiology team is alerted to accelerate basic imaging studies.

Bringing the superb medicine of the Mount Sinai Health System home to Brooklyn, our ED is committed to delivering the right care as quickly as possible.
