South Nassau changes name after finalizing Mount Sinai partnership

Listen

Oceanside, N.Y.-based South Nassau Communities Hospital has been renamed Mount Sinai South Nassau, effective immediately, more than nine months after finalizing its partnership with the New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System.

The 455-bed hospital's new name was derived from an outside consulting firm's study and from discussions between South Nassau and Mount Sinai's leaders. The name change represents both South Nassau's 90-year history and the expanded resources now available through the partnership, according to Richard Murphy, president and CEO of Mount Sinai South Nassau

"The rebranding will create a clear and consistent identity with the Mount Sinai Health System brand and reflects a shared vision and collective goal to provide the highest quality of care to patients on Long Island," Arthur Klein, MD, president of the Mount Sinai Health Network, said in a statement.

The partnership between the two institutions was finalized in December 2018. It included a reported $120 million investment by Mount Sinai to establish South Nassau as Mount Sinai's flagship hospital in the Long Island region.
