BronxCare Health System

Addition of Medical-Surgical Beds

BronxCare is the largest safety net hospital system serving the South and Central Bronx, among the poorest in the nation. The Full Review Certificate of Need Application submitted to the New York State Department of Health requests approval for 36 critically needed medical-surgical beds into available space at BronxCare’s Concourse Hospital Division (see link below).

The additional 36 beds will result in BronxCare becoming better positioned to accommodate and care for the large number of patients requiring hospital admission and those presenting in the ER. It will also address the continuing health disparities associated with BronxCare’s vulnerable service area population.
