Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC) is a public teaching hospital affiliated with the Health Sciences Center of Stony Brook University and with Northwell Health. The 19 story, 631 bed Level I Trauma Center is located at 2201 Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow, NY.
The mission of Nassau University Medical Center is to provide comprehensive high quality health care services to Nassau County residents regardless of their ability to pay. It is organized as a New York state public-benefit corporation under the name, Nassau Health Care Corporation.
The Nassau Health Care Corporation is guided by a 10-member board of directors. The corporation's management team is led by Paul Pipia M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Interim President/ Interim Chief Executive Officer. In 2016, it had operating expenses of $598 million, an outstanding debt of $256 million, and a staffing level of 4,180 people.
Meadowbrook Hospital opened on July 15, 1935 in East Meadow, NY as a 200-bed county owned general hospital. In 1974, its name was changed to the Nassau County Medical Center when it opened the 19-story Dynamic Care Building. This caused confusion with Nassau Hospital in Mineola, New York, which a decade later changed its name to Winthrop-University Hospital. Again in December 2000, as part of its transition from county owned hospital to public-benefit corporation, the Center’s name changed to Nassau University Medical Center to emphasize its affiliation with Stony Brook University's Health Sciences Center.
Opening in 1974 and at 299 feet, it remains the tallest building in Nassau County, NY. The facility includes:
More than 80,000 people annually are treated in the emergency room and 178,000 in its more than 85 specialty clinics. It is accredited by the Commission on Cancer For Teaching Hospital Cancer Programs and is a designated AIDS Center. Its staff totals more than 3,500.
