Long Island Community Hospital to affiliate with NYU Langone


NYU Langone Health and Long Island Community Hospital are joining forces to expand, enhance and clinically merge their healthcare networks in Suffolk County.

Last month the two organizations announced the execution of their affiliation agreement and now both parties are seeking regulatory approval.

Through the affiliation, NYU Langone can further extend its healthcare network into eastern Long Island and expand services for the over 400,000 people served by East Patchogue’s LI Community Hospital.

The goal is to close the agreement by the end of the year.

“We have been working closely with LI Community Hospital over the last several months to assess
whether a partnership between our institutions would benefit each of our organizations, the Long Island
community, and the patients and families who turn to us for help,” said Robert I. Grossman, MD, dean
and CEO of NYU Langone Health. “[This] agreement publicly confirms our confidence that an affiliation
will allow both of our institutions to collaborate and share best practices to better meet the healthcare
needs of the communities we serve.”

With hospitals in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Mineola, NYU Langone is consistently ranked amongst the top hospitals in the country. The healthcare organization also has six inpatient locations, more than 350 ambulatory sites throughout the region, and over 150 practices on Long Island and in Queens.

LI Community Hospital provides a range of services through the hospital facility, Ambulatory Surgical Pavillion, and Knapp Cardiac Care Center, two outpatient wound care centers, Main Street facilities for hemodialysis and primary care in numerous locations throughout the area.

“We have been successful in completing this agreement with NYU Langone because both of our organizations share compatible cultures which value the highest standard in medical excellence,” said Richard T. Margulis, LI Community Hospital’s president, and CEO. “We are confident that this relationship will allow us to continue to expand our services to meet the needs of our community and to more effectively meet the challenges of the ever-changing healthcare marketplace.”
