There is no doubt that Hurricane Sandy had a disastrous effect on the eastern seaboard, especially the low lying areas of New York City.
The damage from the storm surge and high powered sustained winds has been broadcasted to the world throughout the day, and we noticed that we could not find a list of affected New York City area hospitals and their current statuses anywhere.
Below we have made a map of the area hospitals that have been effected. Hospitals have either been classified as Closed or Trauma only. Hospitals in the area have not necessarily closed their Emergency Departments, but it is strongly recommended that you seek treatment at a non-affected hospital if at all possible.
Here are the addresses and statuses of those hospitals displayed in the map above.
