Elmhurst Hospital Center (EHC) earned high marks from the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). When it was last surveyed in 1998, Elmhurst received accreditation with commendation, the highest accreditation status that JCAHO awards to a facility.
EHC serves an area of approximately one million people in one of New York City's most ethnically diverse communities. EHC recently completed a $250 million major modernization, replete with private and semi-private rooms, spacious patient and visitor lounges and private consultation rooms. A modern 513-bed facility, EHC is a Level I Trauma Center, 911 Receiving Hospital and Emergency Heart Care Station. Elmhurst is a regional referral center for trauma services, cardiac catheterization, renal dialysis, neurosurgery, psychiatric services and rehabilitative medicine. Innovative medical services include radiation oncology and lithotripsy.
We offer women comprehensive prenatal, obstetric and gynecological care, and over half of the babies born in this region are delivered at EHC. Elmhurst is also renowned for its mental health services, which include Asian, Latino, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Programs and a Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP). Through our prestigious affiliation with the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, EHC utilizes cutting-edge medical techniques, such as innovative procedures for the treatment of prostate cancer, ovarian cancer and new ultra sound procedures.
