The Hospital provides comprehensive, compassionate care to women and children, and is an affiliate of Northwell’s renowned Cohen Children’s Medical Center, which ranks among the most prestigious children’s programs in the nation.

Adhering to its founding mission, the Hospital annually supports the cost of services delivered to people in need, including subsidized care to low-income, elderly, and under-served communities. A 2017 report of the Healthcare Association of New York State valued that investment in Staten Island’s community health at $100-million.
