NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens is part of the City’s public health care system, proudly serving the culturally diverse communities of central and southeastern Queens.
Since its opening in 1935, the mission of NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens is to provide quality, comprehensive care to all, regardless of their ability to pay. Medical services are provided through its academic partner, the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. The hospital offers residency training in Dental Medicine, Internal Medicine, OB-GYN and Ophthalmology along with fellowships in Pulmonary and Hematology-Oncology.
In 2002, the hospital completed a $149 million modernization. In 2006, the NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens opened The Pavilion, combining health services previously offered throughout its sprawling, 22-acre campus.
NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens offers high-quality care for Cancer, Diabetes Management, as well as comprehensive services for Women’s Health and Behavioral Health.
More recently, Queens expanded its ICU, Neonatal ICU, Medical-Surgical unit, Recovery Room and Labor and Delivery Suites. The hospital offers both private and semi-private rooms for a more personal environment for our patients. Its spacious Ambulatory Care suites feature both primary and specialty services as well as cutting-edge technology. Services include adult, pediatric and psychiatric services and operative services include same-day surgery and inpatient surgery.
In 2018, NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens announced completion of Phase One of its Emergency Room Expansion Project, which will help the community’s growing demand for health care services. The newly configured space adds 6,500 square feet to the Emergency Department, bringing its total square footage to 16,500 square feet. The ED now includes three nurse stations, three triage rooms, a resuscitation room, three isolation rooms, seven exam rooms, and 19 cubicles.
In 2019, NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens opened ExpressCare, a high-quality, walk-in urgent care clinic designed to offer faster service to patients facing routine, non-life-threatening conditions. ExpressCare will help ease overcrowding in the hospital’s Emergency Room by offering evening and weekend hours.
To help more cancer patients, the Queens Cancer Center has expanded its Radiation Oncology capabilities by introducing new technology to its Linear Accelerator which will enhance the treatment of certain brain tumors. The $1.1 million upgrade will more precisely treat targeted tumors while limiting damage done to surrounding healthy tissue and by offering two new treatment options: stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radio therapy. Queens was also the first hospital in the borough to have a PET-CT scanner which provides a higher level of accuracy in disease diagnoses, staging and treatment planning.
