Innovation and Dedication

To reduce emergency room wait times, we have created a special unit dedicated to treat minor conditions such as cuts or abrasions, broken bones, fevers, flu and other illnesses. And, we’ve invested in advanced technology that saves valuable time by giving physicians quick access to results of our patients’ MRI and CT scans.

At South Nassau, our goal is to make your experience in our ER as stress-free and comfortable as possible. Our guest relations professional is available on-site to answer your questions, to convey information between patient and family, and to help you access the full range of hospital resources available to you and your loved ones.
