Location and Directions


Ambulance brought me there for a compound fracture. I was operated on within 2 hours. Immediately after the operation was a bit rough as they are stingy with pain meds. I stayed for 2 more days for monitoring/recovery. Food was actually good. The recent takeover has had an affect on staff. People are new and generally have a good attitude but you can see that they haven't hit their operational rhythm just quite yet. Be a nice person and you should receive good service. Overall the stay was the nicest part of the trauma experience. (a week ago)

Pretty great experience for NYC ER's. Seen and processed very quickly (on a Thursday early morning), everyone was kind and they ran the tests I needed quickly. The doctors were only there for two minutes each, as usual, but were nice, and the nurses and techs were great. Was in my own room within 15-20 minutes of checking in. (3 weeks ago)

Went to the emergency room and they took me in right away. When I shared that I was uninsured they pointed out their clinic and made sure that my emergency room visit was covered so I wouldn't have to worry. Very helpful and knowledgable and I felt very much taken care of by the staff. (in the last week)

Brought my elderly mother to ER and she was very well taken care of. Eventually she was admitted for a three day stay. Found the new NYU Langone ER to be much better than the Brooklyn Maimonides ER. (a month ago)

One of my family members is dealing with a chronic health issue, so we have been in and out of many hospitals in Brooklyn over the past few months. I can say without a doubt that this is the worst hospital in Brooklyn, and possibly the worst hospital in all of New York. Literally go anywhere else, even Coney Island Hospital will treat you with more respect. The doctors here care more about avoiding lawsuits than they do about treating people. They will blame you for any failures in their own treatment under the pretense of avoiding legal blame. Facilities are mediocre, and communication between "teams" treating you is completely nonexistent. We had to repeat details about past treatment (medicine regimen) several times a day, every single day of my relative's stay there. I am not sure if this is because they are incompetent or because of a lack of trust. But this is endemic to how they treat people in this hospital - no trust, no respect, and often, with outright hostility. And unrelated to the atrocious staff at this hospital, most of the hospital resides in a cellphone deadzone. Want to call your sick relatives at the ICU? Good luck with that. (a month ago)
