Innovation that cures and cares
Each person who walks through the doors of a Northwell Health facility has a unique story to tell. They may be delivering a new life, fighting a rare condition or simply staying on top of their preventive care. We all need different things to find our healthiest selves, but we all have the same needs as people: To be listened to, to be accepted, to be empowered — to know somebody cares.
Innovation is in our DNA at Northwell Health. In every corner of our organization, people are working to design lifesaving devices, discover innovative cures and find creative solutions to challenges of every size. But health care isn’t just about innovation; it must be driven by empathy. While we are proud of the strides we have made, our greatest successes are defined by our ability to impact patients’ lives.
On the pages that follow are the stories of incredible innovations by our surgeons, physicians, researchers, nurses and other caregivers — and the patients who inspire us.
