NYU Langone Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital, the flagship of the city's public hospital system, remain closed.
There is no firm timetable on the hospitals' return, reports ProPublica. A spokesman for the city agency that runs Bellevue said that the hospital will likely be out for at least several weeks. NYU's outpatient clinics have reopened but the hospital itself remains closed.
Bellevue's emergency room treated more than 100,000 patients last year, and its physicians and outpatient clinics handled more than a half million patient visits, according to state Department of Health data.
Bellevue is also a key piece of the city's crisis response system as the only high-level trauma center near the lower section of Manhattan, says PP.
Government help in an emergency is a myth. Bloomberg is a criminal.
