Centers of Excellence

Centers of Excellence

A center of excellence is a specialized program within a hospital or ambulatory setting which provides an exceptionally high concentration of expertise and related resources centered on a particular area of medicine. The medical services of this specialized program are delivered in a comprehensive, interdisciplinary manner to bring about the best possible patient outcomes.

Delivering world-class care, centers of excellence distinguish their medical institutions as concentrations of expertise for the care and treatment of particular conditions. This allows the institutions to attract and retain the most highly skilled and experienced physicians, clinicians and researchers in their field, which in turn benefits patients by providing a higher level of quality care through the use of innovative tools, technologies and techniques—all of which improve outcomes.

We’re Proud That Two of Our Northwell Health Partner Hospitals Have Several Centers of Excellence

As part of our commitment to delivering the very highest level of compassionate, personalized care to each one of patients, we are very pleased to be aligned with our Northwell Health colleagues at Phelps Hospital and Northern Westchester Hospital, both of which have departments that have been designated Centers of Excellence.
