As the Chief of Emergency Medicine at PAGNY for NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem, we focus on providing excellent care for each patient who walks in the door. Many of our patients are underserved and under or uninsured. Working within this community provides immense job satisfaction.
I am motivated everyday by my team in the emergency department. We are truly working in a team environment. Everyone has the same goal of providing the best care possible to every patient. My team is motivated by working together and on improving the department as a whole. Our improvements focus on education to our residents and nursing colleagues, and monitoring and lowering stroke and cardiac MI numbers.
As for Harlem, the hospital maintains a close knit family feel. I think this is why the people stay at Harlem and our patients are loyal to the hospital and the family environment.
PAGNY is a provider-centric organization, geared towards the doctors, PAs, NPs and other healthcare professionals on staff. The leadership has an open door policy and is always looking for ways to improve the company and bring it to the next level in healthcare delivery.
