Did You Know? 

Jacobi has the only Snakebite Treatment Center in the entire tri-state area? The Jacobi Snakebite Center is a highly specialized program founded in the early 80's in cooperation with herpetologists at The Bronx Zoo. Jacobi treats 5 to 10 patients a year who have snakebite injuries serious enough to merit treatment with antivenom. Note that this treatment is not without risk. A victim of a cobra bite might well die of respiratory failure if not treated quickly with life support and specific antivenom . In the NYC area this is available only at Jacobi.

The Hyperbaric Medicine Program has treated nearly 3,000 victims of carbon monoxide poisoning – more than any other hospital in the Northeastern United States.
