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 will expand, enhance, and clinically integrate 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 has proven to be an exceptional partner and shares our level of commitment to patient care,” said 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 serving as the primary inpatient hospital.”
In a phased approach, the merger with NYU Winthrop added approximately 70 ambulatory sites to NYU Langone’s healthcare network, including one inpatient location in Mineola, which has served Long Islanders for more than 120 years. Additional benefits of the partnership mean that 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 facilities allows for a seamless continuum of care across ambulatory sites—and an improved patient experience. NYU Winthrop’s Research Institute initiatives, including clinical trials, are also being integrated with those of NYU Langone.
Capital commitments have been made to expand and modernize various NYU Winthrop 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 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; NYU Winthrop’s CyberKnife Center, the first established 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 and an internationally renowned Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and the hospital offers the only fetal surgery program on Long Island.
“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,” said John Collins, Winthrop’s president and CEO.
