History edit

Prior to 2015, the network was called North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System (North Shore-LIJ).[2]

In 2019, Northwell had 23 hospitals and more than 700 outpatient facilities, as well as the Zucker School of Medicine, the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research, urgent care centers, kidney dialysis centers, acute inpatient rehabilitation, sub-acute rehabilitation and skilled-nursing facilities, a home care network, a hospice network, and other services.

More recently, the company signed a deal with software technology company Playback Health, to launch platforms for patient medical information to retain their healthcare data.[3]

In April 2022, Northwell Health announced it will be providing telemedicine support of around 18,000 pounds (8,200 kg) of medical supplies to the front-line regions of Ukraine to aid in the humanitarian crisis.[4]

Northwell Nurse Choir edit

In 2020, during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a choir was formed consisting of eighteen nurses who had worked on the frontline to aid those affected by the virus. Created to support the nonprofit Nurse Heroes group, the members performed virtually in order to ensure safety .[6][7] The group came to prominence in 2021 when they auditioned on the 16th season of America's Got Talent.[8]
