Program Description

Type of Program

Staten Island University Hospital is a 714-bed, specialized tertiary care teaching hospital located in New York City's 5th and fastest-growing borough. SIUH consists of two sites (North and South), which are two of only three
hospitals on Staten Island. SIUH North is a level-I trauma center,
STEMI center with a 24-hour cath lab, regional burn center, and
