Nassau University Medical Center is a 530-bed tertiary-care teaching hospital that has been the primary source of medical care for millions of Nassau County residents since 1935. It is also the heart of NuHealth – a Long Island-based health system committed to delivering coordinated medical care and disease and lifestyle management to everyone, at every stage of life.
In addition to its own extensive medical and surgical capabilities, NUMC is affiliated with the North Shore-LIJ Health System. This relationship allows us to transfer or refer patients requiring highly specialized medicine. We are even creating on-site partnerships with some of the region’s top specialists, including the North Shore-LIJ cardiology team, expanding our ability to bring highly specialized medicine to patients within our walls. No matter what the diagnosis, we will make sure every patient gets the care he or she needs.

The Hospital as Teacher
For more than 60 years, Nassau University Medical Center has maintained a strong commitment to medical education. We are academically affiliated with the North Shore-LIJ Health System, the Health Sciences Center of the State University of New York at Stony Brook, the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine, and the soon-to-open Hofstra University School of Medicine.
As a teaching hospital, we work in partnership with our affiliates to educate medical students, train residents, and provide continuing education for physicians. NUMC’s highly qualified faculty, comprehensively equipped facilities, and strong graduate medical education programs, combined with the challenge of serving a broad patient population in a fast-paced environment, provide an extraordinary learning experience for the next generation of medical professionals. Our educational mission fosters scholarly activity, research productivity, and high standards of patient care – and our patients are the beneficiaries.
