Introducing NYU Langone Hospital — Long Island
When we first began talking with NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island about joining forces, we knew we had found a likeminded potential partner. We share a commitment to the highest quality patient care, a deeply rooted dedication to serving our communities, and exceptional people who bring those values to life through their work and the care they provide every day. Today I am very pleased to announce that going forward, NYU Winthrop will be known as NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, solidifying the journey our institutions have taken together in collaborating to bring our communities the best in world-class healthcare.
The new name provides instant recognition, clearly telling the world that we provide one standard of care—excellence in quality and safety—no matter where that care is received within our health system. NYU Langone consistently comes out on top nationally and in New York State and the metro area across the leading healthcare quality ratings, including Leapfrog, U.S. News & World Report, Vizient, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Our union with NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island makes this outstanding dedication to quality and safety available to more patients than ever before.
The name change also proclaims our unparalleled commitment to excellence in research, giving patients greater access to clinical trials and leading-edge treatments, and medical education. We continue to deepen cross-campus collaborations, and the combined expertise of our health system gives patients on Long Island access to world-class care in every specialty.
Everything that has transpired in this unexpected year has underscored that together we can carry out our mission of service in ways not possible before. Looking back with pride on our heroic efforts, both individually and collectively as a health system, it feels like the right time to affirm our identity as one unified organization.
The very best institutions grow and evolve while staying true to the values and priorities that are the foundation of their success. NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, and our health system as a whole, are living proof of this. We look forward to a bright future together, improving health for patients in our region and beyond.
