Who we are
There’s so much to consider when it comes to your family’s health care. You look for innovative, state-of-the-art medical techniques performed by renowned physicians, but you also want personalized, compassionate care and the assurance that your well-being truly matters. And you don’t want to travel far to get it.
Staten Island University Hospital has it all: world-class health care right where you need it. Our campuses offer the leading-edge medical care you’d expect from a major metropolitan hospital with a unique, community-based atmosphere.
What began as a one-room infirmary more than 150 years ago has grown to become a 714-bed teaching hospital that spans two campuses, providing a vast array of services in health and wellness. Our 17-acre North campus houses Staten Island’s most modern emergency department, a state-of-the-art education center, and a medical arts pavilion. Our South campus boasts its own emergency department and offers a range of specialty programs, including geriatric psychiatry, behavioral health and substance abuse services.
As healthcare options in this country grow, we lead the charge with highly specialized units including:
- The Heart Institute
- The Institute for Cancer and Blood-Related Diseases
- The Regional Burn Center
- The Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center
- The Center for Bariatric Surgery
- The Institute of Sleep Medicine
