NEW YORK An agreement has been finalized for Lenox Hill Hospital to join the North Shore-LIJ Health System, hospital officials announced today. The agreement, approved by both the Lenox Hill Hospital and North Shore-LIJ boards of trustees, has cleared the federal regulatory review process without being challenged, enabling North Shore-LIJ to establish its first hospital in Manhattan and 15th overall in the New York metropolitan area.
The partnership opens a new and exciting chapter in Lenox Hill Hospitals 153-year history, preserving a rich legacy of exceptional care that the 652-bed hospital and its approximately 3,600 employees provide to more than 325,000 patients annually. For North Shore-LIJ, the addition of Lenox Hill Hospital expands its coverage area beyond Long Island, Queens and Staten Island. North Shore-LIJ is already the largest integrated healthcare provider in New York State, the ninth-largest employer in the City of New York and the largest on Long Island with a workforce of more than 38,000. read more
