History of Nassau University Medical Center

Nassau University Medical Center was first established in 1935 and was previously known as Meadowbrook Hospital. It was created as a solution to address concerns of citizens who petitioned for a public general hospital for the care and treatment of the sick in the County of Nassau.

The region’s “safety net” hospital continues to add programs and services to meet the publics needs and has transform into Nassau’s premier Level One Trauma Center, Burn Center, and Hyperbaric Center. Now, this 1,200-bed health care system is moving toward providing new health together through life by emphasizing excellent essential hospital and ambulatory services, primary care in the community, shared responsibility for wellness, a continuum of care, and integrated delivery of specialty services.

It also has a strong educational commitment and has provided training for thousands of young physicians, nurses, emergency medical services providers, and other health care professionals. Click here to see other available residency programs at Nassau University Medical Center.
