Rehab at Southside Hospital
Southside offers a complete physical medicine and rehabilitation program. We are home to the highly respected Regional Center for Brain Injury Rehabilitation, a New York state-certified, hospital-based adult brain injury unit on Long Island.
We’re setting the new standard for heart attack care.
Southside Hospital is the first hospital on Long Island to be recognized for achievement in heart attack care by the American Heart Association with the Mission: Lifeline Gold Award.
We earned the distinction by partnering with local EMS (emergency medical services) to ensure heart attack patients promptly receive the treatment they need to restore blood flow through the heart. We installed leading edge technology so our EMS partners can communicate a heart attack patient’s condition quickly to our physicians before their arrival at the emergency department, so the team can start preparing.
By collaborating internally and externally, we consistently exceed national standards for heart attack care and offer some of the fastest emergency interventional cardiac care in the nation — because every minute counts.
Additional achievements in cardiac care
The 2014 New York State Department of Health report on PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) procedures listed Southside Hospital as having the best success rates for all types of coronary interventions. PCI is a non-surgical procedure used to treat narrowing (stenosis) of the coronary arteries of the heart found in coronary artery disease.
Southside Hospital provides a full range of medical and mental health care services tailored to the needs of families and individuals throughout our community. We seek to engage the large, diverse population we serve with innovative and effective programs that promote health in fundamental ways. Southside Hospital reaches out to the South Shore community with programs that support all stages of life. From programs to fight childhood obesity and substance abuse, to community health fairs and screenings, to injury prevention for seniors, we are providing a roadmap to a healthier future.
Community service plan
Southside Hospital’s outreach efforts range from programs that help patients who cannot afford to pay, to services that support the men and women of our armed services who are making the difficult readjustment to civilian life. From classroom diet and fitness programs to home safety programs for the elderly, Southside connects with people in our community to help them stay healthy and avoid illness and injury.
