Emergency medicine demands constant vigilance to quality, efficiency and technologically-advanced resources. You will find all of these at The David S. and Janet R. Sheridan Emergency Department at Glens Falls Hospital.
Our 43-bed center is one of the busiest in northeastern New York, providing care to more than 46,000 patients annually. Our staff and services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for any medical situation. Our comprehensive and coordinated approach to emergency services allows us to deliver more efficient care in a manner that best meets the needs of our patients and families.
Glens Falls Hospital is also designated as a NYS Stroke Center to improve the standard of quality and access to care for patients with a presumptive diagnosis of stroke. We offer immediate, enhanced brain imaging and evaluation for patients who present to the Emergency Department and could be suffering from a stroke or stroke symptoms.

Additionally, we are proud to be a recipient of the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline Award. This means that our patients benefit from our focus on acute, high-risk, and time sensitive treatment as it relates to cardiac diseases. The AHA’s Mission: Lifeline program’s goal is to reduce system barriers to prompt treatment for heart attacks, beginning with the 9-1-1 call and continuing through hospital treatment.
