New York - Healthcare and Medical Treatment
Maimonides Medical Center is one of the city's premier hospitals. For those who speak no English or have a limited grasp of the language, you'll find the multilingual staff ready to help. Not only do hospital staff help with basic translations, they'll also help you understand the procedures being performed.
The Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital is part of the Lenox Hill Hospital campus. The hospital itself is located on 77th Street and MEETH is on 66th Street. The two combine to offer services and procedures for those with eye, ear and throat problems, including speech issues. In addition, this is a teaching facility providing post-graduate training for those looking to hone their experience in the field. You can find more information about Lenox Hill at http://www.lenoxhillhospital.org.
There are several Internet sites that offer information about healthcare options in New York City. You'll find one of those at http://www.newyorkmetro.com/bestdoctors/. Visitors to this site can browse news and information about healthcare in New York City, and can search the directory's listings for doctors by location, specialty, expertise or hospital. If you're willing to pay for a report of physicians that meet your specific criteria (including gender, years experience and misconduct charges), you'll find listings for some of those specialties at http://www.healthgrades.com. One of the major selling points of this type of report is that you can search for doctors who have had no misconduct charges.
The Greater New York Hospital Association lists links to many of the healthcare providers in the NY area. You'll find the links posted at http://www.gnyha.org/links/health.html.
Another source for interactive searches is at http://www.nyc.com/. You can search by the name of the service you're looking for, by category or by keyword. You can also narrow your search by entering an area of the city. Search results will give you the distance of the particular office from a particular point such as Times Square, or you can sort your results by area to find those closest to some section of the city.
