The mission of the LIJ Medical Staff Society is to foster and promote the welfare of its members by supporting medical education and research so as to maintain the highest scientific and educational standards in order then to provide the best level of care to our patients and the community at large.
The Medical Staff Society, also referred to as the Organized Medical Staff, is comprised of over 5,000 physicians, dentists and podiatrists affiliated with Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Cohen Children’s Medical Center, Long Island Jewish Forest Hills Hospital, Long Island Jewish Valley Stream Hospital and Zucker Hillside Hospital. The Northwell Health Long Island Jewish Medical Center Medical Staff Society is organized to represent the interests of its members. All community and hospital based physicians are required by the Medical Center By-Laws to be members of the LIJ Medical Staff Society.
Regular meetings of the LIJ Medical Staff Society take place twice a month. Medical staff affairs meet on the second Friday of every month and serve as the line of communication between our members and hospital administration. The Executive Committee Meeting is held on the third Sunday of each month to conduct the practical business of the LIJ Medical Staff Society.
The Executive Committee consists of:
1. Four elected officers: President, President Elect, Treasurer, Secretary.
