Parker Jewish affiliates with North Shore-LIJ

Through six newly formed affiliations, including one with Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation in New Hyde Park, the North Shore-LIJ Health System will be better able to assist seniors in the areas of long-term care, short-term rehabilitation, assisted living facilities and senior residences.
“These new affiliations offer a tremendous opportunity for North Shore-LIJ to partner with local healthcare facilities and senior residences on a number of clinical and educational initiatives involving geriatric medicine,” said Michael J. Dowling, the president and chief executive officer of North Shore-LIJ. “Through our coordinated efforts, the health system will be able to provide rapid intervention and referrals to specialists, as well as develop education programs for clinicians and patients to better serve older adults in the region.”
The services being provided will differ depending on the affiliate. Some of the services will be consultations by North Shore-LIJ physicians in specialty medical areas, consulting services for quality management/quality improvement, home care services, hospice care services, palliative care/end-of-life care, ambulance service and onsite lab service.
There will also be opportunities for education and outreach.
“While the health system has had long-standing working relationships with many of these organizations, the formal clinical agreement strengthens relationships between our institutions and allows us to work more creatively and effectively to serve the needs of older patients and their families,” Dowling said.
North Shore-LIJ’s other affiliations are with Grace Plaza Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Great Neck, Highfield Gardens Care Center in Great Neck, A. Holly Patterson Extended Care Facility in Uniondale, South Shore Health Care in Freeport and Sterling Glen Senior Residences with locations in Long Island and Queens.
