THE BRONX - A state-of-the-art psychiatric emergency room is now open at North Central Bronx Hospital.

The new facility is part of a $2.4 million investment made by the New York Health and Hospitals Corporation.

It features new window bays, a closed-circuit security camera system and new medical treatment, interview and waiting rooms.

The design for the new emergency room was a collaboration between doctors, nurses, staff and engineers to ensure the best streamlined care.
