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 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.

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.
