Lenox Hill Hospital–a storied Upper East Side institution that has been caring for the people of New York since 1857, is planning a revitalization. The hospital’s mission is to deliver care with compassion and respect, to promote wellness in our communities and to advance the field of medicine through education and research.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for all New Yorkers. Throughout the crisis, Lenox Hill Hospital’s team of over 4,000 doctors, nurses, caregivers and support staff stepped up to help save thousands of lives.
Northwell Health is planning to revitalize Lenox Hill Hospital into a hospital ready to care for current and future generations. This will ensure it remains at the forefront of clinical care, both regionally and nationally for years to come. Importantly, the plan draws from best practices learned during our fight against COVID-19 to create an optimal, pandemic-ready clinical environment.
The hospital has a national reputation for outstanding patient care and innovative medical and surgical treatments. Lenox Hill Hospital ranks among the top 10 hospitals in the New York metropolitan area and the entire state, according to US News’ analysis of more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide. The hospital’s neurosurgery team was the subject of the highly-acclaimed Netflix docudrama “Lenox Hill.”
Lenox Hill Hospital is part of the Northwell Health network, the largest private employer in New York State and the New York metropolitan area, providing world-class health care to over two million people annually. We will continue to engage the community, elected officials, physicians and our employees as we renew Lenox Hill Hospital, expanding the world-class care it has always delivered.
