Located in Bethpage, St. Joseph Hospital is a 203-bed community hospital offering many medical and surgical specialties. The hospital, which joined CHS in 2010, holds The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval®, is accredited under the hospital standards and laboratory standards, and provides the surrounding community with an array of outpatient and inpatient services.
The hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) handles more than 33,000 visits per year, providing care for the full spectrum of emergency conditions, including heart attacks, strokes, respiratory problems, orthopedic injuries, appendicitis, gastrointestinal disorders and infectious diseases. A new cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) scanner allows physicians to provide rapid and accurate diagnoses of heart disease and strokes.
St. Joseph is proud to unveil its newly renovated Clinical Decision Unit (CDU). The CDU is designed for assessment and treatment of patients whose medical needs can be addressed within a 24-hour period, avoiding unnecessary inpatient admissions. The new unit offers a comfortable and private environment.
The inpatient units care for the more than 6,000 patients per year whose conditions cannot be resolved in the ED or CDU or on an outpatient basis. A comprehensive range of medical specialists provide care in internal medicine, cardiology, pulmonary medicine, gastroenterology, critical care, kidney disease, neurology, hematology and oncology. Surgical specialists offer surgery for breast disease, breast cancer, gallstones, hernia repairs, plastic and reconstructive surgery, urologic surgery, ENT surgery, surgery for gastrointestinal diseases and cancer, surgical oncology and spine surgery. Orthopedic surgery for fractures, sports injuries and joint replacements is also performed. Surgery and endoscopy are available on an inpatient basis or through the Ambulatory Surgical Service.
