In 1997, The New York Hospital and The Presbyterian Hospital merged, creating the New York Presbyterian Hospital Care Network. These entities became what are now known, respectively, as the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and the NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System. The system is now one of the largest healthcare systems in the country. Today, New York Hospital Queens,with its own leadership and charter – and as a proudmember of the NewYork-Presbyterian HealthcareSystem and affiliate of the Weill Medical College of Cornell University – has grown to become a comprehensive and innovative institution. The hospital maintains specialty care centers and clinics throughout the borough of Queens and offers world-class health care services in almost every specialty area.
New York Hospital Queens has grown to become a 519-bed acute care hospital, that last year admitted more than 35,000 patients, had more than 139,000 outpatient visits, and treated 115,000 people through the emergency department. Over time, this hospital has dramatically expanded and refined the expertise it offers, but still retains its founder’s guiding principle of service.
