With 13 hospitals and more than 8,000 doctors, our County healthcare system includes the best rated health and hospital facilities in the nation—LEAC is looking to keep it that way.
Nassau County’s stellar healthcare system includes the award-winning North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System (the County’s largest health care provider), the Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, award winning Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, South Nassau Communities Hospital, and the Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center at Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre.
While our hospitals keep our residents in top health, our County’s scientists keep the industry on the forefront of innovation. We benefit from a major research presence in the biological sciences industry. In fact, the structure of DNA discovery was announced at Nassau County’s Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, where 2,000 scientists and students – including seven Nobel Prize winners – currently work to solve medicine’s most pressing concerns.
The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and Winthrop-University Hospital are two award-winning research and teaching hospitals that ensure Nassau County maintains its competitive edge in healthcare. In fact, Winthrop-University Hospital is currently constructing a new $55 million, 71,000-square foot research center which will focus initially on diabetes and obesity. Winthrop has recruited specialists from all over the country to take part in the efforts to cure diabetes at the research center, which is scheduled to open in 2014. LEAC looks forward to what the future holds for the health of our County and the globe.
