Outpatient Parenteral Antibiotic Treatment (OPAT) Unit

We encourage all community physicians to make use of the NYHQ OPAT UNIT open 7:30am to 4pm seven days a week, including all holidays. OPAT is under the direct supervision of the NYHQ Infectious Diseases Faculty. We offer an alternative to the outpatient home and short-term rehabilitation administration of IV antibiotics as well as other IV treatments. This is an ideal service for either early hospital discharge or avoidance of hospitalization for ambulatory patients. Services provided include free parking, IV placement and care, coordination of referral services, and communication with referring clinicians. OPAT diagnoses include cellulitis, osteomyelitis, endocarditis, pneumonia, pyelonephritis, prostatitis, abdominal infections, dehydration, anemia, etc... For direct referrals during working hours, please call 718-670-2289. After hours, the NYHQ Infectious Diseases resident-on-call may be contacted at 718-670-1234. For more information about the service, contact the Infectious Diseases Section at 718-670-1525.

FLUSHING HOSPITAL
MEDICAL CENTER

The newest member of Flushing Hospital's surgical team has been described as world renowned and revolutionary in the field of minimally invasive surgery. This prestigious new member of the team also needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet.

The Da Vinci robotic surgical platform is now at Flushing Hospital, offering our patients the most technologically advanced surgical system in the entire region.

Robotic surgery has been available for a number of years and offers patients many benefits, including minimal pain, faster recovery time, less blood loss, and shorter hospital stays. What makes Fl ushing Hospital's robotic platform so exciti ng, however, is the new single-site robotic capabilities it offers.

Flushing Hospital is planning a "Robot Week" where employees and community members will have an opportunity to meet and name Da Vinci in the near future.
