Fellows rotate at two of the health system’s hospitals, conveniently located near the Nassau-Queens border. Northwell Health is one of the largest health systems in the country, comprising 23 hospitals, more than 66,000 employees, and 4,000 employed physicians, and is world-renowned for its visionary and caring approach to health care. Strategic alliances with the Cleveland Clinic, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and others extend the system's reach further.
