Leadership is part of our DNA at North Shore-LIJ Health System. It's what drives us to think beyond the challenges of the present and shape ourselves to face the future. Our philosophy is simple: manage for today - lead for tomorrow. We're building on our successes to create a sustainable health system that is a worthy legacy to the thousands of men and women who have worked tirelessly throughout the years in pursuit of excellence. They are the champions we celebrate, and it is their spirit that keeps us striving upward.
Clearly, the world of healthcare is in the midst of an unprecedented paradigm shift. Challenges abound. Patient demographics are changing, technology is moving at record-breaking speed, and accountability and transparency are not only expected - they're demanded. Nothing less than visionary leadership can be expected from a preeminent healthcare institution to stay in the forefront of medical advancement and the delivery of patient-centered care.
At North Shore-LIJ Health System, we see every challenge as an opportunity. The demands for such a shifting landscape call for a new kind of healthcare system. One that not only accepts change, but embraces it. Challenging old ways of thinking, excelling at new and innovative solutions, and always keeping patient care at the center of everything they do.
Our vision is not just to maintain our nationally-recognized track record in medicine, research and education, but to transform medicine as we know it today. Our accomplishments are the foundation from which we will effect these changes - and our commitment to continuous improvement and transparency are the catalysts to our success.
The North Shore-LIJ Health System has embarked on a noble and reachable quest to lead in the delivery of state-of-the-art health care and preventative medicine, engaging the finest minds, resources and support available. We know where we're headed - and we're doing everything we can to lead the way to reach that destination.
