NYU Langone Health



NYU Langone Health is one of the nation’s premier academic medical centers. Our trifold mission to serve, teach, and discover is achieved daily through an integrated academic culture devoted to excellence in patient care, education, and research. Specialists at NYU Langone Health treat a full range of medical conditions in both inpatient and outpatient settings at locations throughout New York City’s five boroughs. We emphasize treating the whole person and not simply the disease. We are renowned for evidence-based clinical care across a wide array of specialties, including cardiac and vascular care, cancer, inpatient and outpatient musculoskeletal care – including orthopaedics, rheumatology, and rehabilitation – and a host of specialty children’s services at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital and the KiDS Emergency Department.

Patient Services

Each year, we are recognized for providing outstanding care. In 2013, 2014, and 2015, NYU Langone Health was ranked number 1 for overall patient safety and quality among leading academic medical centers. Our exceptional physicians are named on Castle Connolly’s “America’s Top Doctors” and New York Magazine’s “Best Doctors” annual listings. Our nurses are also recognized for excellence in the care they provide, receiving Magnet® status for the third consecutive time by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Magnet® status is an honor achieved by only 7% of hospitals in the United States. We also received The Gold Seal of Approval by The Joint Commission, reflecting a commitment to high-quality patient care.
