This collaboration allows us to share clinical best practices, care management expertise and information technology platforms to enhance our patient care. With dedicated staff, modern facilities and state-of-the-art treatment, we are committed to meeting the needs of the community and continuing to aspire to excellence. Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital with main campuses in Newburgh and Cornwall, and off-site facilities throughout the community, is a 345 bed acute care hospital dedicated to providing for the health care needs of the community. Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital is the regional center for neonatology, thanks to its Elaine Kaplan Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The center is opened 24 hours, 365 days of the year and is one of the newest and busiest emergency departments between New York City and Albany.

General trauma and specialty treatments bays for cardiac, asthma, Women's Health and Pediatrics enable our highly skilled ER team to provide comprehensive, quality care in a Patient-centered environment. During the past few years, the newly rebranded Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital has undergone significant transformation. This transformation has occurred on both campuses, including the expansion of our services as a result of our partnership with Montefiore Health System. In March 2018, St Luke's unveiled a $1.7 million chronic care center - Rehabilitation at Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital - in Partnership with Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains, New York. This state-of-the-art facility offers physical and occupational therapy, cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation and eventually cognitive medicine including dementia services and a memory clinic. The hospital recently broke grounds on a $8 million remodeling of the hospital's Newburgh Emergency Department.
