A Message from the Chief of Acute Trauma & Critical Care
Jason Sample, MD


NYP/Queens is now one of only a few Level I Trauma Centers in the New York region. A Level I Trauma Center must provide round-the-clock access to a trauma surgeon, operating room as well as every subspecialty of surgery available.

NYP/Queens Trauma Center has achieved the highest distinction given by the American College of Surgeons being verified as a Level I Trauma Center. The Trauma Service at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens is a dedicated team of doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals who are here to catch you when you fall. Comprised of health care professionals from Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Radiology, and other departments, we will guide you through all phases of trauma care and recovery.  Our job is to get you back out there living your life.  We are also working to make our community safer through outreach programs in injury prevention.  The best way to survive an injury, after all, is to prevent it. We hope that you will never have to use our services, but if you do, you can count on expertise you trust and get service you deserve from the Trauma Service at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens.
