JFK Medical Center
My mother has been hospitalized at JFK twice in less than a month. Both times her care left much to be desired. Contact numbers for family not documented on her chart. There was a lack of communication with family regarding her discharge arrangement. Social worker and discharge planner were rude. On second admission staff remained rude. Medications were not given as ordered with staff being unaware until family caught the omission. Very poor accountability on multiple levels- unit staff, social workers, management. The focus was how soon can she be discharged. A disgrace to healthcare in the hospital setting. FYI, I am a hospital experienced RN saying this!

The staff in the Brain Trauma Unit are great. They did a wonderful job on my son. However, don't expect to get in touch with Dr. Greenwald who runs the BTU. After a half dozen call to his office with no returns nor any replies to our E-mails I would rate him a zero for availability. Unless you key-hole him in the corridor good luck getting any kind of information from his office. We were suppose to make an appointment for a follow-up , guess what NO REPLY to out phone calls. If you are in need of Rehab I would look elsewhere.JFK should find another Dr. to run the Brain Trauma Unit!

The emergency room needs more help and more caring personnel. They are far to slow when it comes to caring for incoming patients. I am talking about seriously ill people, not someone who walks right into the ER because they cut their finger on a piece of paper.
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
