History of Nassau University Medical Center and Our Program

Nassau University Medical Center was first established in 1935 and was previously known as Meadowbrook Hospital. It was created as a solution to address concerns of citizens who petitioned for a public general hospital for the care and treatment of the sick in the County of Nassau.

The region’s “safety net” hospital continues to add programs and services to meet the publics needs and has transform into Nassau’s premier Level One Trauma Center, Burn Center, and Hyperbaric Center. Now, this 1,200-bed health care system is moving toward providing new health together through life by emphasizing excellent essential hospital and ambulatory services, primary care in the community, shared responsibility for wellness, a continuum of care, and integrated delivery of specialty services.

It also has a strong educational commitment and has provided training for thousands of young physicians, nurses, emergency medical services providers, and other health care professionals. Click here to see other available residency programs at Nassau University Medical Center.

Nassau University Medical Center’s Emergency Medicine residency program started in 2015 with the primary goal of developing compassionate and dedicated emergency medicine physicians with exceptional knowledge and skills. We inspire the highest professional standards as clinicians, scholars, and leaders in the field of emergency medicine and the communities we serve. It is a four year ACGME accredited program which accepts six residents per academic year.

With a high volume, high patient acuity, and wide spectrum of illnesses, our residents are provided with an excellent and well-rounded experience. We have a wide diversity of patient populations and general and specialty care settings. The Residency leadership is dedicated to offering the finest quality education and training to ensure the residents achieve excellence as practitioners. In addition to receiving exposure to a variety of clinical specialties at the rotations within Nassau University, the Emergency Medicine residents also have the opportunity to work and learn at other area medical centers such as South Nassau Communities Hospital and the NYC Poison Control Center.

The highly experienced faculty physicians are committed to providing outstanding patient care in an atmosphere that encourages excellence in teaching. They are board certified/eligible E.M. physicians with areas of expertise such as toxicology, critical care, neurological emergencies, education, EMS, operations, etc. In addition to providing caring, efficient, and current treatment to our patients in the emergency department, as well as addressing public needs, the Department strives to educate our students, staff and the EMS community.
