Brian Lally, the system’s chief development officer, said the additional $400 million in philanthropy would support health equity initiatives, employee wellness, a new outpatient facility on Manhattan’s East Side and a 104-bed behavioral health facility for children on its Glen Oaks hospital campus.
The outpatient facility, which would feature an on-site cancer center, is separate from Northwell’s plan to expand Lenox Hill Hospital on the Upper East Side, which Lally said got pushed back but is still in the works.
Capital projects that have been supported by the $1 billion raised to date include an advanced surgical pavilion at North Shore University Hospital and a center for women and newborns at Staten Island University Hospital.
The endowment gifts have so far supported 13 professorships and chairs and $8.9 million in full and partial scholarships for 204 students at the Zucker School of Medicine.
Northwell operates 21 hospitals and 850 outpatient facilities in the city and Westchester County and on Long Island.
