Queens Hospital Center
A member of the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, Queens Hospital Center is a major health care provider in the borough of Queens. The year 2010 marked the hospital’s 75th anniversary of serving the communities of central and southeastern Queens since it first opened its doors as Queens General Hospital in 1935. Its mission remains to provide quality, comprehensive care to all New Yorkers regardless of their ability to pay. The hospital opened the doors of a new, 360,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility in January 2002—the result of a four-year, $149 million capital project. Services in the hospital include inpatient care, newborn care, adult, pediatric and psychiatric emergency services and operative services, including same-day surgery and inpatient surgery. The hospital contains both private and semiprivate rooms, providing a more personalized environment for the patient. November 2006 saw the opening of another facility—an ultramodern Ambulatory Care Pavilion that connects to the first floor of the new hospital via two enclosed bridges. Officially open to the public in January 2007, the $53 million, 142,000-square-foot pavilion houses enhanced Centers of Excellence in Diabetes and Behavioral Health as well as the primary care, pediatrics, psychiatry, ophthalmology and dentistry clinics. The arrival of the new pavilion complemented the hospital’s commitment to a philosophy of patient-centered care by unifying and consolidating services previously offered throughout its sprawling campus.
