We believe that good emergency care extends beyond the walls of the emergency department. The Andrew Levitt Center for Social Emergency Medicine leads the transformation of emergency care to elevate the importance of home, community and society.



The Andrew Levitt Center aims to expand our understanding of the interplay of social forces and health as manifest at medicine’s doorstep, the modern emergency department, and to intervene when the interests of social justice demand.

With deeper understanding may come opportunities to refine emergency medicine and emergency medical services to better respond to changes in population health, as well as to intervene in the social milieu to reduce health crises, improving population health and decompressing burdened emergency departments.
