Queens Hospital Center
82-68 164th Street
Since 1992, Icahn School of Medicine has been affiliated with Queens Hospital Center, a member of New York City's municipal health care system. Located in the borough of Queens, one of five counties composing New York City, the hospital is located just 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan.
Queens Hospital Center is a 350-bed facility providing primary, secondary, and tertiary medical care, and is also a 911 Receiving Facility and Certified Heart Station. Queens Hospital offers a full spectrum of primary care and specialty treatment services, having special expertise in women's and children's health, as well as a dedicated AIDS Team. The hospital averages 14,000 admissions, 50,000 emergency room visits and 250,000 clinic visits per year. Additionally, the hospital runs two free-standing community health centers nearby and has recently broken ground for the rebuilding of its main inpatient facility.
Queens Hospital has been the major provider of care for the Southeast/Central Queens area for over 75 years. The Hospital serves a culturally and economically diverse population of approximately one million people, of whom more than 60 percent are Black or Hispanic. There is also a growing Southeast Asian immigrant population. Segments of the population within the hospital's service area display poorer health status indicators than does the borough population as a whole, and Queens Hospital lies within a federally designated Health Professional Shortage Area.
