Northwell Health was named as the Official Healthcare Provider of the 2019 PGA Championship, which will be held at Bethpage Black, in Farmingdale, May 13 through 19.

With 23 hospitals, more than 700 outpatient facilities and approximately 68,000 employees throughout the New York metropolitan area, Northwell is headquartered on Long Island—also home to Bethpage. Northwell will provide all necessary medical services to promote a safe PGA Championship for all players, spectators and volunteers, utilizing three on-course medical stations staffed by Northwell Health emergency medicine physicians, orthopedic surgeons, registered nurses and certified athletic trainers.

Emergency care will be covered by the health system’s Center for Emergency Medical Services, the largest hospital-based ambulance service in the metropolitan area. Northwell staff will also offer education on prevention and wellness for attendees.

As New York State’s largest healthcare provider and private employer, Northwell Health’s mission is to improve the health of the communities it serves.

“Health and wellness are key components of the game of golf, and we’re delighted that Northwell Health will serve as the Official Healthcare Provider of the 2019 PGA Championship,” said PGA of America Director of Championship Sales and Partnerships John Handley.

“Northwell is proud to support the PGA Championship, a world-class sporting event that elevates the stature of Long Island and highlights its abundance of recreational offerings that make it an extraordinary place to live and work,” added Northwell Health President and CEO Michael Dowling. “Northwell is pleased to offer its clinical expertise in the areas of emergency medical services, orthopedics and hospitality, to ensure another successful tournament at Bethpage Black.”

One of golf’s four major championships, the PGA Championship, conducted by the PGA of America, has evolved into one of the world’s premier sporting events. It annually features one of the strongest international fields in golf, the fairest setup and the only all-professional field among golf’s majors. Since 1916, golf’s best professionals have won the PGA Championship, from Walter Hagen, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead and Byron Nelson to Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy.
