About our hospital

Established in 1916, Huntington Hospital is a full-service, 371-bed, nonprofit community hospital serving Huntington Township and the surrounding communities.

Huntington Hospital has been a member of Northwell Health since 1994, and shares the system’s dedication to providing world-class service and compassionate care that is focused on the patient.


Who we are

Huntington Hospital is proud to have been recognized with various awards and distinctions, including being listed as one of the top-ranked hospitals in New York state by U.S. News & World Report's 2016-18 best hospitals list.

Huntington Hospital has also once again achieved Magnet® status—the nation's highest recognition for nursing excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Huntington Hospital is the only hospital on Long Island and the second in the state—and one of only 33 in the country—to achieve this designation four consecutive times. That's a long history of extraordinary care.

The Magnet Recognition Program was developed by the ANCC to recognize healthcare organizations that provide exceptional nursing care and innovations in professional nursing practice. Consumers seeking the very best care can rely on Magnet designation as the ultimate credential—the gold standard—for high-quality nursing.
