The Department of Neurology at North Shore University Hospital is a part of the Northwell Health Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery, one of the New York metropolitan area’s largest providers of world-class neurosurgical and neurological care.

Our internationally known doctors offer the experience and expertise needed for a wide range of common disorders and rare diseases, such as autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, epilepsy, stroke, movement disorders (like Huntington’s disease and Parkinson’s disease), multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular disorders and stroke. Our dedicated team of specialists is at the forefront of neurological treatments and contribute to significant advancements in the field of neuroscience.

What sets our hospital apart:

  • We’re the first on Long Island to receive advanced certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC)—earning the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark in recognition of our ability to receive and treat the most complex stroke cases.
  • For the past several years, we have been reaccredited by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) as a Level 4 epilepsy center, which provides complex forms of intensive neurodiagnostic monitoring as well as more extensive medical, neuropsychological and psychosocial treatment for epilepsy care.
  • We earned the Stroke Care Excellence award for seven years in a row, and recognition for being among the top 5 percent in the nation for treatment of stroke by Healthgrades.
