NYU Winthrop Chosen to Provide Ambulance Services to Garden City

 

Agreement Adds to Hospital’s Expanding Emergency Services and Continued Prominence as an ACS Level 1 Trauma Center

NYU Winthrop Hospital has become the exclusive provider of ambulance services to the Incorporated Village of Garden City. NYU Winthrop is providing 24/7 coverage 365 days a year to Garden City, with two ambulances on duty at all times and a third ambulance activated for special events. The hospital, in affiliation with NYU Langone Health in Manhattan, has a total fleet of 40 ambulances that serve Long Island and the five boroughs of New York. NYU Winthrop’s Garden City first-responder crews, which include paramedics and emergency medical technicians, will collaborate closely with local Long Island police and firefighting first responders for maximum safety and optimal response. NYU Winthrop will provide those first responders, when necessary, with Narcan training as well as Stop the Bleed Training, the latter a national program that teaches first responders and everyday citizens how to recognize life-threatening bleeding and provide immediate measures to control that bleeding.

“NYU Winthrop has long provided swift and experienced teams in response to the emergency needs of our local communities on Long Island,” said Justin Burke, Director of External Affairs at NYU Winthrop Hospital. “We’re proud that our neighbor, Garden City, recognizes that we offer the most skilled of capabilities, and as a Level 1 Trauma Center, we have the expertise to handle the most complex of medical cases upon ambulance arrival.”

Previously, Nassau County served as the first line of response to Garden City residents in need of ambulance services. The county will now serve as back-up to NYU Winthrop’s ambulance services.
