Jacobi Medical Center
Jacobi is one of about six New York City hospitals to be verified as a Level 1 Trauma Center. The designation means that Jacobi is qualified to handle the sickest and most severely injured patients and also provides outreach, education and research that benefit the larger community.
Our physicians are highly-trained specialists in Emergency and Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Our teams of trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, and pediatric surgeons provide expert care for all kinds of injuries.
The Jacobi Snakebite Center is a highly specialized program founded in the early 80’s in cooperation with herpetologists at The Bronx Zoo. Jacobi treats 5 to 10 patients a year who have snakebite injuries serious enough to merit treatment with antivenom. Note that this treatment is not without risk. A victim of a cobra bite might well die of respiratory failure if not treated quickly with life support and specific antivenom . In the NYC area this is available only at Jacobi.
