Flying over traffic at 135 miles an hour, the SkyHealth helicopter offers the fastest and safest route to and from any medical facility in the northeast region. SkyHealth has a designated helipad located at NSUH.  NSUH just completed building a $325M surgical pavilion.  The pavilion features 18 operating rooms, including three hybrid operating suites with advanced imaging, 44 intensive care unit beds, a lobby at the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital and two levels of parking under the building.

Northwell has four surgical residencies in its 23-hospital system.  The Division also manages a 20-bed Surgical Intensive Care Unit. Lastly, the Division is actively involved in research at the basic science, translational, and clinical level.
