Emergency Medical Associates (EMA) recently contracted with Ellenville (N.Y.) Regional Hospital to provide emergency department management services.
Ellenville Regional Hospital, a critical access and surgical hospital, treats approximately 13,000 emergency department patients annually. It offers a wide range of services including inpatient care, rehabilitation, orthopedics, gastroenterology, cardiology, pain management, ambulatory surgery and women’s health services. It is the smallest teaching hospital in the United States.
“Our partnership with Emergency Medical Associates enables us to enhance the quality of care in our emergency department,” explained Steven L. Kelley, FACHE, president and chief executive officer. “It’s an important step in our mission to save lives, restore health and create a caring community for the region we serve.”
The hospital has won numerous state and federal quality awards, including four Patient Safety and Clinical Pharmacy Services Collaborative awards and a Quality and Patient Safety Award from the Northern Metropolitan Hospital Association Patient Safety Institute for reducing the average length of stay in the emergency department to less than 100 minutes.
“Ellenville Regional has an excellent reputation in Ulster County and has been recognized nationally for its clinical expertise and dedication to teaching the next generation of clinicians,” said Raymond Iannaccone, MD, FACEP, FACHE, president and chief executive officer of Emergency Medical Associates. “We are proud to partner with the hospital and expand our presence in the Hudson Valley.”
