NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – NYU Langone Medical Center began the process of reopening on Saturday.

But it still has a long way to go.

The physician offices, outpatient procedures and diagnostic testing sites will resume operation starting on Monday, according to a release sent out by the hospital. The main hospital and the emergency room, however, will remain closed due to superstorm Sandy.

Patients who had previously scheduled appointments are urged to call 866-724-1830 to confirm the location of their appointments.

Seven backup generators failed during the storm surge on Monday night, forcing the evacuation of 300 patients.

Meanwhile, at Bellevue Hospital, some 700 patients had to be evacuated after the power failed. An official at Bellevue Hospital said that the hospital could be out of commission for at least another week.
