Commitment to excellence

Medical Emblem at the Hofstra Institute

The goal of the North Shore-LIJ Health System is a simple one that has been the same since its inception: to be better tomorrow than we are today.

Our goal is to deliver exceptional quality to every patient during each step of the care process. We have developed a quality program that includes robust metrics analysis, awards, strategic partnerships and the innovative Krasnoff Quality Management Institute.

North Shore-LIJ facilities, programs and clinicians have received many national, state and local accolades for superior outcomes, quality care and positive impacts on the communities we serve.

North Shore-LIJ strives to develop a bond of trust with our patients. As such, protecting the privacy of our patients’ health information is essential. Our privacy practices support patient rights under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). 

We are committed to full compliance with all state and federal health care program requirements and realize the importance of acting with integrity at all times. Our compliance program holds all employees accountable with comprehensive policies and procedures.

A commitment to diversity and inclusion of all people is essential to transforming health care. North Shore-LIJ is proud to employ a highly diverse workforce, weaving these principles into the fabric of the organization.

Responsible health care does not end at our facility walls. Through responsible decision-making and community support, North Shore-LIJ strives to protect and improve the environment and quality of life in our communities.
