Revolutionizing the field of neuroscience
As one of the largest neurosciences programs in the country, we have a vast repertoire of diagnostic, clinical and research expertise to treat the entire spectrum of neurological conditions—with both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options.

Comprehensive care you can count on

Our multidisciplinary team includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurocritical care doctors and physicians and nurses who work together to coordinate your treatment. We have round-the-clock access to emergency care, and Northwell Health is home to the first American College of Surgeons-verified level 1 trauma center in the downstate region. The Northwell Health Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery has Long Island’s largest neuro-ICU at North Shore University Hospital, with16 beds staffed with neurointensivists, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. We are part of Long Island’s only health system to provide 24/7 telestroke and tele-ICU coverage, giving you access to highly specialized experts at any time.

North Shore University Hospital was the first hospital on Long Island and one of four in New York state to receive advanced certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC), earning the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark in recognition of its ability to receive and treat the most complex stroke cases. Multiple hospitals within Northwell Health have been credited by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) as Level 3 and 4 epilepsy centers, providing patients with complex forms of intensive neurodiagnostic monitoring and extensive medical and neuropsychological services.
