North Shore University Hospital has been providing exceptional care in kidney transplantation for more than a decade, and recently was named one of only three hospitals in New York state to earn a tier five—the highest rating—by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients. In 2018, the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital at North Shore University Hospital became the first and only full-service destination for heart transplantation in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and across all of Northwell Health. And we’ll soon be adding liver transplants to our extraordinary transplantation capabilities.
A cornerstone of the health system, our hospital offers nationally recognized transplant surgeons who are supported by a highly trained transplantation team, which includes physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists and transplant coordinators. And because time is of the essence in organ transplantation, we have access to Northwell’s SkyHealth program, a state-of-the-art emergency helicopter transport service. We’ve also added new Intensive Care Units (ICUs) for transplant patients that feature E-ICU technology. This means our doctors are able to monitor their patients’ recovery from anywhere, at any time.
Your care doesn’t end when you leave our hospital
We understand that when patients receive a new organ, their wellness journey is just beginning. That’s why our team is here to offer support during every stage of the transplant process—from before and after surgery to recovery and beyond. This compassionate and life-changing care is a lifelong partnership with every one of our transplant patients—and is just one of the many ways Northwell Health is raising the standard of health care for all.
