The Jacobi Medical Center is the largest public hospital in the Bronx and serves more than a million patients every year. In 2011, more than 350,000 outpatients were treated at Jacobi Medical Center, and there were more than 100,000 visits to the emergency room.
Jacobi Medical Center is one of only three burn centers in New York City. It also has the only snakebite treatment facility in the tri-state area. In addition to these specialized facilities, the center includes facilities for emergency care, pediatric care and surgeries.
Most of the patients who are treated at Jacobi Medical Center receive a high standard of care and treatment. However, malpractice does occur. When it does, it can leave a patient in worse condition and with serious injuries.
