North Shore LIJ Health System – Why Work For Us?


North Shore-LIJ Health System provides services and support to guide people through the changing world of healthcare.

North Shore-LIJ supports the community through compassionate care and outreach, innovative research and education programs, and so much more.

Clinical Care


North Shore-LIJ has the resources to help with every step of the healthcare journey, including specialty programs and institutes and more than 12,000 member physicians.

Our wide range of services not only helps patients find care, but the right care for them.

Community Health


We realize that staying healthy is as important as getting better, and that wellness services and health-related information play an increasingly critical role.

Our community health programs and events bring wellness, prevention, safety, and support into the everyday lives of our communities.



The medical innovators that we educate today will drive the future of medicine.

Through the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, our residencies and fellowships, and continuing and professional education, we are dedicated to the best training for tomorrow’s leaders.



The researchers at the world-renowned Feinstein Institute for Medical Research realize that innovation and advances in medicine are critical to curing patients and saving lives. 

Our research revolves around our patients and is inspired by their most critical needs. 



We believe that having health insurance should be a smooth and stress-free experience. Through CareConnect, our insurance company, we simplify the world of health care coverage and services.

CareConnect provides a critical connection to affordable, superior care.



We continually search for ways to turn innovative ideas into profitable businesses that can benefit the health care industry. North Shore Ventures was created to commercialize concepts born within North Shore-LIJ.

Ideas, no matter how big or small, have the opportunity to thrive here.


From our President and CEO, Michael J. Dowling

“The goal of the North Shore-LIJ Health System is a simple one that has been the same since its inception: be better tomorrow than we are today.

As the world of health care evolves, we have a monumental opportunity to lead and manage the transition to a new and better model of care, without compromising the quality of care that we deliver or our financial stability.”


The North Shore-LIJ Health System strives to improve the health of the communities it serves and is committed to providing the highest quality clinical care; educating the current and future generations of health care professionals; searching for new advances in medicine through the conduct of bio-medical research; promoting health education; and caring for the entire community regardless of the ability to pay.

Our goal is be a national health care leader, committed to excellence, compassion and improving the health of the community.

To improve the human condition by advancing disease-oriented, basic scientific and clinical research.

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Health Literacy drives North Shore-LIJ’s mission to foster an environment that supports principles of equity, diversity, inclusion and effective communication. Diversity, inclusion and health literacy strategies and principles are essential to transforming the health and wellness of all populations.

As one of the leading healthcare organizations in the country with facilities located throughout the most diverse communities in New York, North Shore-LIJ is proud to employ a highly diverse workforce and is dedicated to weaving diversity, inclusion and health literacy into the fabric of our organization.

Our number one value is to put patients first. We uphold that value by understanding and respecting our patients’ beliefs as well as their cultural, religious and language needs and practices. At every level of our organization, we encourage team members to embrace our differences.


“At the North Shore-LIJ System, we recognize a profound sense of responsibility to contribute in every way possible to the health and well-being of the communities we serve, not only through providing the best quality healthcare but also by employing sound environmental business practices and programs.” Michael J. Dowling, President and CEO

These comments are at the heart of North Shore-LIJ’s sustainability and social responsibility mission. In November 2010, our CEO, Michael J. Dowling, shared these ideas in an article he wrote for employees shortly after North Shore-LIJ publicly partnered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish far-reaching, environmentally responsible programs and business practices at its facilities. Since signing the EPA agreement, North Shore-LIJ’s sustainability and social responsibility agenda is now part of the health system’s day-today operations. We actively avoid contributing to the environmental hazards that cause health problems in our communities and work to increase health, economic and social equality to help people live healthy lives. We have also created strategic partnerships locally in an effort to increase our impact and further advance sustainability practices across our region.

As the largest employer on Long Island and the third largest private employer in New York City, North Shore-LIJ harnesses the energy and commitment of our employees by engaging them in initiatives to help build a culture of sustainability and social responsibility. It is our hope that the strategies and tools they learn in the workplace will carry over into their homes and communities.

North Shore-LIJ Health System is committed to transforming care and transforming careers. View some of our amazing career progression stories below from our North Shore-LIJ employees. To see more stories like this, find us on social media: LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and Twitter.

    The working atmosphere is perfect and a great place to learn and get hands on training. I definitely recommend this place


    There aren't any cons other than work hours I suppose but even then, you wouldn't mind because it doesnt seem like a bore

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up that is all. They know what they are doing here so I don't have much to say. I know there won't be any problems.
