New York Hospital Queens, located in the heart of Queens in Flushing, NY, is a 519-bed acute, tertiary care facility. Some 1,500 physicians, dentists and podiatrists are on the medical staff of the hospital—about one-third are full-time faculty and two-thirds are voluntary attending staff with community-based practices. They are joined by a staff of more than 3,500 hospital employees and full-time chairmen in 14 areas of clinical excellence.
In 2007, New York Hospital Queens launched a $200 million Major Modernization Program. Completed in 2011, this aggressive three-year building project added a new west wing that includes 80 much-needed additional beds, new ambulatory surgery facilities, interventional procedure rooms, a new main lobby and numerous other enhancements, such as a new parking facility.
The hospital offers a full spectrum of sophisticated diagnostic and surgical procedures for inpatients and outpatients. However, the hospital continuously adds new clinical programs and earns recognition from patients, physicians and rating agencies for its centers of excellence. In 2007, the hospital was named to the national Thomson 100 list of Performance Improvement Leaders in the major teaching hospital category.
The hospital's centers of excellence include the Neuroscience Institute, with a New York State-designated stroke center; the state-designated Level 1 Trauma Center with capabilities to treat the most serious emergencies; and a state-of-the-art Women and Children's Pavilion with a Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, for the care of infants born too soon. The hospital's comprehensive Heart & Vascular Center continues to be one of the top providers of cardiac surgical care in New York.
Every culture regards health care in a unique way. Staff members at New York Hospital Queens, who serve one of the most culturally diverse populations in the nation, care for patients in a manner that addresses the borough's distinctive cultural differences. Our strong commitment to customer service allows us to provide excellence every day, not only in clinical areas, but also for our patient’s spiritual, emotional and comfort care.
The hospital has served the community for more than 50 years. The hospital opened in 1957 as Booth Memorial Medical Center, a 210-bed general care hospital and maternity home under the leadership of the Salvation Army.
New York Hospital Queens is a proud member of the NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System and is affiliated with Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
