Setting the standard of health care

When you’re the top hospital on Long Island, you don’t get there alone. North Shore University Hospital—a cornerstone of Northwell Health—has doctors, nurses and support teams that are dedicated to delivering world-class care, helping us become one of the best hospitals in the region according to U.S. News and World Report. Our renowned services include advanced neurosurgical care; a nationally recognized heart program at the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital; and an organ transplant center that provides heart, kidney—and soon—liver transplants. 

We also offer a wide range of specialty and subspecialty residency programs, postgraduate training programs and clinical fellowships for research and education. 

It's this enduring commitment to extraordinary, patient-based care that has helped us become recognized as the regional leader in specialized healthcare services. From our nationally ranked heart care at the Heart Hospital to our innovative neurosciences program, it’s no wonder more patients choose us for care than any other hospital on Long Island.*
