Northwell, NYC Health + Hospitals open $47.7M laboratory

New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health partnered with NYC Health + Hospitals to open the largest nonprofit, hospital-operated lab in the country.

The Clinical Laboratory of New York, located in Little Neck cost $47.7 million to build. The 36,000-square-foot, two-story facility has 176 employees and will eventually grow to 210.

The Clinical Laboratory of New York Alliance, which helped oversee the project,was first formed in 2014 by the two systems in an effort to integrate laboratory services.

"This state-of-the-art facility shows what’s possible when two mission-driven organizations collaborate," said Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. "Northwell Health's laboratory expertise, along with exciting new technology deployed here, will help turn tests around faster and more efficiently. That's good for all of the communities served by Northwell and NYC Health + Hospitals."

"The pooled expertise from our two health systems, combined with staff having the latest technology at hand, will benefit all our patients," said Mitchell Katz, MD, president and CEO at NYC Health + Hospitals. "The high volume of testing combined with greater efficiency from the overhead costs of operating just one large facility will save significant money for both our health systems."
