Bellevue Hospital Resumes Nonemergency Walk-in Service after Sandy

NEW YORK (AP) — Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City has reopened its nonemergency walk-in services after suffering what officials called "devastating damage" from Superstorm Sandy.

But hospital officials announced Monday that full services at the East Side facility won't resume until February.

Starting Monday, Bellevue also will offer limited adult and pediatric outpatient primary care clinics and routine OB-GYN services. Limited emergency care services are expected by mid-December.

City Health and Hospitals Corp. President Alan Aviles says it's the first time in 275 years the hospital was forced to stop operations.

About 700 patients had to be evacuated from Bellevue when all but one of the hospital's generators failed.

Bellevue is one of four New York hospitals closed to inpatients three weeks after the storm hit the city last month.
