What's In a Name?

Center for Emergency Care

When asked about the history of the name “Center for Emergency Care” Dr. Richard Levy, the founding force for change both locally and nationally, shared a story.  I can answer the question, but can’t help from wondering if some things are not better left in the fog of war. As much as I’d like it, the name was not a result of deep thinking or critical analysis. It was more a matter of reacting to the circumstances at the time.

In Spotlight


Kiran Faryar, MD

Our own Dr. Faryar receiving 3rd place in the national Young Physician Section research competition at the AAEM Scientific Assembly this year.  Her project looked at the changing geographic distribution of heroin and opioid users presenting in an urban ED and found abuse was predominant in non-Hispanic Whites from impoverished zip codes. Additionally, the percent increase in rural zip codes was more than double that in urban and suburban zip codes during the study period (2009-2014)
