NewYork-Presbyterian/The Allen Hospital merges world-class care with compassion. Established to reverse a shortfall in care in northern Manhattan, the Bronx, Westchester and northern New Jersey, we offer community-focused medicine with the support of two major academic medical centers. The combination is awe-inspiring.

Few community institutions boast such a range of technology and clinical specialties.

Capabilities
From performing hip replacements in the OR to mending broken bones and lacerations in the ER, our facility teams make the most of their opportunity to impact the full course of patient treatment. For example, our General Surgery Group specializes in the treatment of hernia and gallbladder disease. Colleagues enjoy strong relationships with senior leadership, as well as a direct voice through nursing shared governance and interdisciplinary cooperation. A Level II Trauma Center, we serve a diverse community and treat a diverse range of cases.

Unique Factors
The most intimate of all primary locations, NewYork-Presbyterian/The Allen Hospital is also known as the “pilot” hospital. Many groundbreaking practices (such as bedside barcoding) come first to this facility. We support a genuine “family” culture. People love our team for its warmth and collegiality.

Annual Bodeguero Health Fair
In partnership with Jetro's Bronx wholesale food market, NewYork-Presbyterian offers bodegueros–owners and workers of small grocery stores–general health screenings, influenza vaccines, health counseling and health insurance eligibility screening/enrollment. Bodegueros commit to long work hours and are often uninsured, leaving little time or resources for health needs.

New Biomarkers Identify Kidney Injury
NYP clinicians are proud to collaborate across campuses, matching the best in medical research with community-focused care. In 2012, a kidney specialist at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/The Allen Hospital and an assistant professor of clinical medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons made a breakthrough. They found a way to diagnose acute kidney injuries using a simple urine test. This enables emergency departments to identify these high-risk patients when they first arrive at the hospital. The study was published online in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Talent Show
In the spirit of community-focused care, NYP/The Allen Hospital proudly hosts an Annual Talent Show each May to coincide with Older Americans Month. In 2012, over 26 performers were recruited from our community.

This year’s contestants included acappella solo acts, two dance ensembles and several instrumental performers. More than 60 people gathered in the Thayer conference room. Seniors from around the area attended, in addition to house staff and family of the performers.

Profiles in Care
Noris Blackman, Pharmacy Technician, NewYork-Presbyterian/The Allen Hospital

Under a darkened sky, Noris Blackman is working at NYP/The Allen Hospital delivering medications, syringes and intravenous fluids to patients throughout the night. She’s a living example of both clinical excellence and patient focus.

While her station is in the Pharmacy located deep inside the hospital, Ms. Blackman, a Pharmacy Technician, is usually found on the floors, helping patients by stocking the Emergency Department, operating rooms and every other unit with the necessary pharmaceutical supplies.

She and her Pharmacy colleagues are responsible for filling the medication needs of the hospital and, she says, “There’s no such thing as a quiet night.” Ms. Blackman joined NYP nearly two years ago after two decades working as a Pharmacy Technician for Duane Reade.

A fan of medical TV drama shows, she stumbled upon “House, MD” a few years back and became intrigued by the hospital environment. “I wanted to know if what I saw on TV is what it’s really like,” she said. She quickly found out those shows are pure fiction. But what she did discover was even better: a love for the patient care, the many areas in the hospital that she helps support and her Amazing team members at NYP.
