Featured Organization: NorthShore LIJ

Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJMC) is a non-profit, tertiary care teaching facility, and a flagship hospital of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, which is changing its name in January 2016 to Northwell Health. The health system is the largest in New York State and serves a catchment area of approximately 8 million people. For nearly 10 years, North Shore-LIJ has provided comprehensive reproductive health and sexual health services to the increasingly diverse communities of Queens. North Shore-LIJ focuses on women’s health to ensure patients have access to high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare, a wide range of contraceptive options, and testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. For patients seeking pregnancy, we offer pregnancy testing, prenatal and postpartum care, in addition to access to long-acting, postpartum contraceptive options. Our ambulatory locations are both positioned within multi-specialty care units, allowing for patient access to additional services, including behavioral health and social services, medical, dental and comprehensive cancer screening. Additionally, we offer a variety of education and outreach topics at no charge to the community, including a peer health education program, to empower youth surrounding important reproductive health topics.
