About NuHealth System
Health care in America is changing, and NuHealth is part of that change. We are committed to deliver excellent essential medical care and disease and lifestyle management to everyone, at every stage of life. We want to make health care more accessible, affordable and patient-friendly for young families, hardworking singles and seniors with growing health care needs here on Long Island. NuHealth continues to There have been and will continue to be many physical improvements and operational changes throughout NuHealth’s Centers of Care in Nassau University Medical Center, A. Holly Patterson Extended Care Facility and the NuHealth Family Health Centers. Equally important, we are dedicated to an ongoing process of critical self-examination and clinical improvement to ensure we are providing the best possible care for our community. But we will never lose sight of our most important asset: human capital. Our people are working hard to overcome the many challenges of operating a publicly-funded health system. Last year alone, our 3,400 employees treated 75,000 emergencies, cared for 23,000 inpatients and saw more than 200,000 patients in our 80-plus outpatient specialty clinics. What's more, our 589-bed A. Holly Patterson Extended Care Facility is operating at 95% capacity, and our Family Health Centers recorded 65,000 visits. We are committed to help the dedicated men and women in our employ find new ways to improve operating efficiency and patient satisfaction, and to reward those who go the extra mile.
Above all, NuHealth intends to be a national model of what a state-of-the-art public hospital and community health care system should be. We will set standards in teaching and research, and become a respected and sought-out authority in public health care education. We are working hard to be a model of accessibility and cultural sensitivity. But our highest priority is right here at home: to earn the public trust as a leader in patient care by meeting — and exceeding — the highest public standards.
