The Contessa Nadia Farber Emergency Pavilion

The highly trained Emergency Department staff is always ready to handle a variety of unexpected medical crises that require immediate attention. Each patient who comes to the Emergency Department is triaged to assess the level and urgency of care needed. This allows the staff to identify and treat the most critically ill and injured patients first. Mather is one of a few community hospitals with a NYSDOH designated Stroke Center.

Since cardiac disease and related disorders are the leading cause of death in our community,  our Stroke Center is designed to quickly diagnose and ensure timely treatment of patients suffering heart attacks, strokes and related disorders.

Those who are less ill or injured and don’t require extensive testing are treated in a dedicated Fast Track area where a physician assistant or nurse practitioner will conduct an examination and determine the appropriate treatment.

Mather strives to ensure that every patient is seen by a provider as soon as possible and with the utmost compassion. As a result, our patient satisfaction ranking has placed Mather in the 99th percentile of Emergency Departments nationwide that see up to 40,000 patients a year.

Our caring staff includes physicians who are board certified in emergency medicine as well as nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nursing assistants, social workers, laboratory technicians, x-ray technicians and respiratory therapists.

In addition, Mather intensivists, physicians who care for the most critically ill patients in the Emergency Room and other intensive care units, are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Mather recently opened a five-bed monitoring unit within the Emergency Department for cardiac and other critically ill patients.
