All successful organizations have a unifying element or thread that runs through them — connecting the various parts — so that they function cohesively and at their optimum best. For the North Shore-LIJ Health System, that unifying element has always been a commitment to quality.

The architects? They are the physicians, nurses and other caregivers within the health system, as well as its scientists, administrators and the thousands of other contributors. They are responsible not only for creating the plan to deliver care but also for helping that plan come alive — making North Shore-LIJ a living, breathing embodiment of an ideal that keeps quality always at the center of everything we do.

From facility-to-facility, physician-to-physician, patient-to-patient, the one constant throughout the health system is its ongoing dedication to improved outcomes and superior care — a design for quality combined with the will and expertise to bring that vision to life.
