Stop the presses, New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation and Coney Island Hospital, opened up a new critical care unit on July 6.

Councilman Chaim Deutsch, (D–Coney Island) held the golden shears that snipped the ribbon on the brand-new, state-of-the-art, enhanced-care room as Dr. Ram Raju, president and chief executive officer of New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, Councilman Mark Treyger (D–Sheepshead Bay), Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein, (D–Sheepshead Bay), Assemblyman William Colton, (D–Gravesend), Captain Neteis Gilbert, commanding officer of PSA1, Roseanne Degenarro, of the Community Advisory Board, and staff cheered him on.

Patients with life-threatening injuries can now receive quality care in private rooms designed to treat up to two patients simultaneously with the most up-to-date technology available.

The current emergency room treated upwards of 90,000 emergency room visits last year. Holy sutures!
