Staten Island University Hospital (SIUH) is a major tertiary referral center on Staten Island, in New York City.

SIUH is a two-campus, 714-bed specialized teaching hospital located in New York City's fastest-growing borough. Occupying two large campuses, plus a number of community-based health centers and labs, the hospital provides quality care to the people of Staten Island, the New York metropolitan region, and to patients from around the world.

Founded in 1861 as the Samuel R. Smith Infirmary, the institution adopted its current name during the 1990s with the merger of Staten Island Hospital (now the North Campus) and the Richmond Memorial Hospital (now the South Campus). The Doctor's Hospital of Staten Island in Concord, Staten Island became SIUH's Concord campus in the early 2000s; however it is currently closed awaiting renovations.

SIUH maintains an academic affiliation with the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center College of Medicine and Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, whose medical students and residents complete a portion of their training at SIUH. SIUH also operates, in conjunction with Wagner College, a Physician Assistant training program and a Physician Assistant Fellowship in Emergency Medicine.

SIUH is one of three hospitals in Staten Island and the only one that has an Emergency Medicine Residency. It is part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System.

The North Campus was constructed in the 1970s when Staten Island Hospital outgrew its original site on Castleton Avenue.

It is located at 475 Seaview Avenue between Mason Avenue and Olympia Boulevard in the South Beach/Ocean Breeze neighborhoods of Staten Island and houses the Staten Island Heart Institute, the regional Burn Center, the Nalitt Institute for Cancer & Blood-Related Diseases, and serves as the core training center for the institution's graduate medical education (residency) programs in Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Hematology, Geriatrics, General Surgery, Vascular surgery, Radiology, Pediatrics, Pathology, Psychiatry, Obstetrics/Gynecology, General Dentistry, and Podiatry.
