NYU Langone Health announced today the completion of a full-asset merger with NYU Winthrop Hospital, with which it has been affiliated since 2017. The partnership expands, enhances, and clinically integrates NYU Langone’s healthcare networks on Long Island, while building upon those of NYU Winthrop Hospital, which provides inpatient and outpatient medical care through its network of Long Island–based healthcare facilities.
“NYU Winthrop Hospital has proven to be an exceptional partner and shares our level of commitment to patient care,” says Robert I. Grossman, MD, the Saul J. Farber Dean of NYU School of Medicine and CEO of NYU Langone Health. “Since we’ve been affiliated, our institutions have enhanced the range and quality of services offered to the residents of Long Island and have grown the physician network across the region, with NYU Winthrop Hospital serving as the primary inpatient hospital.”
In a phased approach, the merger with NYU Winthrop Hospital added approximately 70 ambulatory sites to NYU Langone’s healthcare network, including 1 inpatient location in Mineola, New York, which has served Long Islanders for more than 120 years. Additional benefits of the partnership have already been realized, such as:
- Long Islanders now have access to NYU Langone’s specialized services and resources, including increased access to clinical trials—and more cost-effective care delivery across the region.
- The implementation and integration of the Epic electronic health record system throughout NYU Winthrop Hospital facilities allows for a seamless continuum of care across ambulatory sites—and an improved patient experience.
- NYU Winthrop Hospital’s Research Institute initiatives, including clinical trials, are being integrated with those of NYU Langone.
- Capital commitments have been made to expand and modernize various NYU Winthrop Hospital physical facilities to better accommodate an increasing Long Island patient population.
- NYU Winthrop Hospital’s 591-bed medical center, with more than 75 divisions of specialty care and an ACS Level 1 Trauma Center, offers current NYU Langone patients on Long Island comprehensive inpatient care, as well as outpatient care through a network of healthcare facilities closer to home.
Current NYU Langone patients on Long Island also have access to NYU Winthrop Hospital’s many stellar services and programs including:
- A renowned cardiac program, with NYU Winthrop Hospital among the top five transcatheter aortic valve replacement centers in the country.
- The first Diabetes Education Program established in New York State and the first major teaching hospital in the state to earn The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for advanced inpatient diabetes care.
- Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Winthrop Hospital CyberKnife Center, the first established Cyberknife® center in the region.
- A Breast Health Center that was the first in Nassau County to earn certification by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.
- An internationally renowned neonatal intensive care unit, as well as the only fetal surgery program on Long Island.
According to John Collins, NYU Winthrop Hospital’s president and CEO, “The merger of these two outstanding institutions will enable us to expand the services offered to the communities we serve, enhance the level of care provided, increase access for patients to clinical trials, and lead to the more cost effective delivery of care across the region.”
