Recovering from Hurricane Sandy, NYU Langone to Reopen by End of January

NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City plans to reopen its main clinical facility, Tisch Hospital, in December and restore nearly all other services by the end of January after it was damaged by Hurricane Sandy in late October.

NYU Langone will reopen Tisch Hospital in phases by the end of December. The hospital's emergency department underwent significant damage from the storm, but NYU Langone is working to restore "portions of this function as soon as possible," according to the news release.

As part of its reopening efforts, NYU Langone must receive approval from the New York State Department of Health prior to resuming services.
