The Division of Trauma, Burns, Critical and Acute Care, led by Dr. Robert Winchell, MD, FACS, is a part of the Department of Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine. We provide vitally needed services for New York City while offering critically ill patients a unique blend of expertise and compassionate care from highly skilled surgeons. The trauma center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center — ranked the # 1 Hospital in New York and the #4 Hospital in the country by U.S. News and World Report —is an American College of Surgeons designated Level I adult and a Level II pediatric trauma center. This designation recognizes our ability to provide the highest quality of care, especially in critical and complex cases for NYC and the surrounding region. The division also houses the William Randolph Hearst Burn Center — world-renowned for its expertise in burn care and research. We also work closely with surgeons from the Hospital for Special Surgery, ranked the #1 hospital for orthopedics in the country.
The faculty of the Division of Trauma, Burns, Critical and Acute Care are nationally and internationally recognized for their expertise and skill. Many hold national and international positions in their specialty societies and are considered leaders in their field.
As part of our commitment to world-class healthcare, our surgeons also conduct research to find new and better ways to treat patients in critical care situations. With two competitive fellowships in the division, we are also committed to training and developing future healthcare leaders in the field.
