World-class health care, close to home
There’s so much to consider when it comes to your family’s health care. You look for innovative, state-of-the-art medical techniques performed by renowned physicians, and rightly so - but you also want personalized, compassionate care and the assurance that your well-being truly matters. And you don’t want to travel far to get it.
Staten Island University Hospital has it all: world-class health care right where you need it. Our campuses offer the leading-edge medical care you’d expect from a major metropolitan hospital with a unique, community-based atmosphere.
What began as a one-room infirmary more than 150 years ago has grown to become a 714-bed teaching hospital that spans two campuses, providing a vast array of services in health and wellness. Our 17-acre North campus houses Staten Island’s most modern emergency department, a state-of-the-art education center, and a medical arts pavilion. Our South campus boasts its own emergency department and offers a range of specialty programs, including geriatric psychiatry, behavioral health and substance abuse services.
As healthcare options in this country grow, we lead the charge with highly specialized units including:
- The Heart Institute
- The Institute for Cancer and Blood-Related Diseases
- The Regional Burn Center
- The Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center
- The Center for Bariatric Surgery
- The Institute of Sleep Medicine
- The Level III Perinatal Center
- The New York Head & Neck Institute
- The Stroke Center
As part of the Northwell Health network of providers, Staten Island University Hospital has access to the wealth of resources and services of New York's largest health system, while remaining firmly entrenched and engaged in our local community. Our team takes great pride in the work we do to teach and train as we seek out new and better ways to prevent and treat disease. And we never forget that our first commitment is to you - the individuals whose lives we touch each day.
