Our Center for Attention and Learning (CAL) offers sophisticated, foundation-funded neuropsychological testing for school-aged children. We have an expanding Early Treatment Program, co-sponsored by On-Track New York that focuses on the intensive needs of patients with first episode psychosis. The Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders program, affiliated with the outstanding Obstetrical Service at Lenox Hill, delivers psychiatric and psychological treatments to women and infants. We are initiating a new program to address the mental health needs of medical residents at Lenox Hill.
The Northwell Health System is ranked among the top 10 hospital systems by DiversityInc, recognized for its increasing commitment to effective diversity management and culturally competent care.
