The Lehman Brothers Emergency Center

As the only hospital in Lower Manhattan, New York Downtown Hospital is the first responder to virtually every medical emergency in the area, providing life-saving care for 30,000 emergency patients each year. More than 50% of the Hospital's emergency patients come from the Lower Manhattan business community.

In 2003, Downtown Hospital broke ground on The Lehman Brothers Emergency Center, a new state-of-the-art emergency facility. The new ER will be double the size of the existing center and will include dedicated areas for chest pain, asthma, women, and children. The new facility will also include a decontamination unit and other improvements to enhance the Hospital's ability to respond to both individual and community-wide emergencies.

The $25 million project has been made possible by a leadership gift of $5 million from The Lehman Brothers Foundation, as well as by major donations from many other generous organizations, businesses, and individuals.

Highlights of The Lehman Brothers Emergency Center at Downtown Hospital:

- One of the largest and best equipped decontamination facilities in the city
- A new Chest Pain Emergency Unit
- Individual asthma treatment stations
- An enlarged Trauma Room equipped to perform a wider range of procedures
- A new Pediatric Emergency Suite with amenities for children and their parents
- An expanded PromptCare area to expedite care for non-acute patients
- A Women's Health Suite
- State-of-the-art patient monitoring and computer systems
- The Herman Goldman Department of Emergency Medicine

We ask that you become a partner with us by supporting The Lehman Brothers Emergency Center. Donors can choose from a variety of methods that offer tax savings and other financial benefits, in addition to the satisfaction of having contributed to a life-saving cause. Giving options include:

- Naming an area in the new emergency center in honor of a loved one, community group, or business
- Underwriting a specific emergency health program or service
- Establishing an endowment or annuity
- Donating to the general Emergency Department Fund
