Long Island Jewish Medical Center
Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJMC) shares the title of clinical and academic hub of the Northwell Health System. It is an 827-bed voluntary, non-profit tertiary care teaching hospital serving the greater New York metropolitan area. The 48-acre (19 ha) campus is 15 miles (24 km) east of Manhattan, on the border of Queens and Nassau Counties, in Glen Oaks, Queens and Lake Success, New York. Its postal address is New Hyde Park (11040 and 11042) on both sides of the city limits.
LIJMC has three components: Long Island Jewish Hospital, Steven & Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York and The Zucker Hillside Hospital. Long Island Jewish Hospital is a 452-bed tertiary adult care hospital with advanced diagnostic and treatment technology, and modern facilities for medical, surgical, dental and obstetrical care. As the primary teaching hospital for the new Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine and the Long Island Campus for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, LIJMC’s graduate medical education program is one of the largest in New York State, and programs are in divisions headed by full-time faculty.
LIJ's full-time staff includes more than 500 physicians, who supervise care in all major specialties and participate in the medical center’s extensive teaching and research programs.
The medical center is located on the southeast side of North Shore Towers.
Children born at Long Island Jewish Medical Center are typically born at Katz Women's Hospital, on the Queens side of the complex, making children born at the hospital natives of New York City, not Nassau County.
