The Emergency Care Service provides specialized acute care services at the main campus and in the regional network for MSK patients suffering from cancer or the side effects of its treatment. At main campus in 2023, the Urgent Care Center saw close to 25,000 visits, resulting in approximately 12,000 admissions and 3,500 observation unit stays. The regional symptom care clinics have experienced year-over-year growth in patient volume with over 88,000 visits since 2019. The service is comprised of 30 physicians and 40 APPs distributed at main campus, in the regional network, and at our partner hospitals.
