The Javits New York Medical Station is no longer accepting new patients beginning today due to declining referrals and admissions. The USNS Comfort has discharged all patients and is no longer operational. The Healthcare Evaluation Call Center (HECC) is still operating only for the purpose of discharging and transferring the remaining patients from Javits to an appropriate disposition.
GNYHA recommends reviewing its web-based Guide to New York City Alternate Care Sites for a list of hospital- and health system-operated temporary facilities that may or may not accept interfacility transfers.
The New York State Department of Health is still operating its Hospital Capacity Coordination Center (HCCC) to facilitate interfacility transfers, transportation, and supply requests for hospitals throughout New York State. Call (518) 473-1667 to reach the HCCC.
