Northwell Health – Why Work For Us?

We are Northwell Health and we're Made for this

Raising the standard of health care

We’re committed to excellence in clinical care, community health, education, research, health insurance, and innovation. And our employees are the reason we’re able to do this. We embrace our Culture of C.A.R.E. (Connectedness, Awareness, Respect and Empathy) with our people and the communities we serve.  


Our four Magnet® hospitals continuously receive on-going designation. In we received the first four time designation on Long Island.  We were designation #3 in the nation on DiversityInc’s Top 12 Hospitals and Health Systems list making the top 10 for the fifth consecutive year. Our physicians are continuously raising the bar and record total of 170 physicians affiliated with Northwell Health were listed in the 19th edition of New York Magazine’s annual “New York’s Best Doctors” issue. In 2017 we named one of the nation’s top nonprofit employers of military veteran by G.I Jobs, earning the no. 2 spot for non-profit organizations.

Are you made for us?

At Northwell Health, we’re so proud of our incredible culture. We express it authentically and we believe that our culture – and our organization – is ours to shape.

This year, we worked with over 2,000 of our employees to shape our employee promise. It’s our expression of who we are, what we do and what we expect of our people. In turn, it also talks about what they can expect from us.

Our promise is by the people, for the people. A powerful statement of intent. It’s us on our best day and us every day. 

Our employee promise 


Diversity, Inclusion and Health Literacy (DIHL) is a division of the Office of Community and Public Health. We drive Northwell Health's mission to promote, sustain and advance an environment that supports equity, diversity, health literacy and community.  Strategies and principles of DIHL are essential to transforming the health and wellness of all populations.

As one of the largest healthcare organizations in the United States, Northwell Health is dedicated to providing exceptional care to all our patients. We serve the most culturally diverse communities in the United States and diversity is integral to creating a productive workplace that promotes inclusion and fosters talent.

At Northwell Health diversity and inclusion is weaved into the fabric of the organization. Our differences can be seen in the composition of our leadership, faculty, staff, and students; and are continually reinforced through our policies, practices and organizational structure.

Our ultimate goal is to deliver the highest quality care to all, regardless of race, ethnicity or cultural background, as well as language proficiency, literacy, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability or socioeconomicstatus.


“At Northwell Health, 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 Northwell Health'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 Northwell Health 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, Northwell Health’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, Northwell Health 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.

    I have been working at Northwell Health part-time (More than 5 years)


    There are endless opportunities to further your career with opportunities to work on different units or if you want to go back to school


    Not that many cons. It depends on your colleagues like any other job. But there are limitations on non health professionals salaries
