New York’s emergency room system is in dire need of a shakeup, but a major emergency room in the Bronx will soon be serving that need.
The Bronx Emergency Medical Services is one of many emergency medical centers across the city, but it has been struggling with capacity for years.
Since 2008, the emergency room has seen more than 8,300 patients, the majority of whom were not admitted.
In a report from The New York Times, the New York Civil Liberties Union noted that the Bronx emergency room had the third-highest rate of wait times for an appointment in the state.
The city is looking for a new emergency room that would allow it to serve patients at a faster rate.
The Bronx Emergency Medicine Clinic is expected to open in September, but the Bronx Emergency Health System is in the midst of a $500 million expansion that is expected by 2020.
The clinic is already operating in New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.
It has seen a total of 7,500 patients, of whom just over half were admitted, according to the report.
The report found that the new facility is a perfect fit for the need.
“This is going to be a big jump forward,” said Dr. Paul J. DeLuca, the Bronx ER director.
“This is a great opportunity for us to serve more patients, more rapidly.”
He also told the Times that the city will have to find a way to deal with rising costs.
“You’ve got to make sure you’re not adding a layer of cost that’s not going to make it worthwhile,” he said.
“We’re going to have to figure out how to make this a viable operation that makes sense for the city.”
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters in June that he wants to expand emergency care in the city.
He told reporters that the need was so great that he would be willing to “do something like this in the next six months.”
The New York Daily News reported that De Blasio’s plan will include the construction of a new ambulance and emergency room.
He said he is also looking to expand access to emergency care for patients who are not admitted into the city’s hospitals.
The mayor’s plan is not without controversy.
The Times noted that he plans to ask the New Jersey Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to develop a model plan to deal the issue.
