Practice Management

Three Northwell Health hospitals have been named Advanced Spine Centers of Excellence by The Joint Commission. 

Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Long Island Jewish Medical Center Valley Stream and North Shore University Hospital are among five facilities nationwide to earn the recognition, according to a news release shared with Becker's on May 17. The three facilities combined perform more than 1,300 spine surgeries annually.

Northwell Health's spine program includes surgical technologies such as guided navigation and spine robots.

"Institutionally, these hospitals have supported Northwell’s vision for offering the highest quality of care while remaining forward thinking and innovative in spine technologies," Nicholas Sgaglione, MD, senior vice president and executive director of Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute, said in the release. "Operative surgical investments have been made in the fields of spine robotics and navigation, which elevates these programs as leaders in the spine market."
