The Radiation Medicine Department serves the entire North Shore-LIJ Health Care System, the 2nd largest secular non-profit medical system in the United States, and the largest medical system of any type in the Northeast. The Health System spans 15 hospitals in 4 New York City boroughs and both Nassau and Suffolk Counties, serving a potential population of more than 17 million people. The majority of Departmental functions are centralized at our new facility in the Center for Advanced Medicine in Lake Success, NY, opposite the LIJ Hospital campus. The Department is an integral part of the new Hofstra-NSLIJ School of Medicine and functions seamlessly within clinics located in the 2 tertiary referral hospitals of the Health System, Long Island Jewish Hospital and North Shore University Hospital.

    The Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine was established in the summer of 2010 as the first new school of allopathic medicine in New York State in over 30 years, and the first located in Nassau County.
    The Long Island Jewish Medical Center shares the title of clinical and academic hub of the North Shore-LIJ Health System. It is an 829-bed voluntary, non-profit tertiary care teaching hospital serving the greater metropolitan New York area. Three divisions comprise LIJ: Long Island Jewish Hospital, Cohen Children’s Hospital and the Zucker Hillside Hospital for behavioral health care.
    The North Shore University Hospital is one the cornerstones of the health system. The hospital has 788 beds and a staff of 2700 specialist and subspecialist physicians. The full-time staff includes more than 400 physicians and dentists. House staff totals over 350 residents and fellows in programs accredited by the ACGME, CODA and independent programs. 

    The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is the research branch of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System.  Institute scientists collaborate with clinicians throughout the health system to shed light on basic biological processes underlying disease. More than 800 scientists and investigators conduct research in oncology, immunology and inflammation, genetics, psychiatry, neurology, pediatrics, surgery, urology, obstetrics/gynecology and many other specialties.
