Community Services

As the only hospital health care organization in Nassau County specifically charged with providing care to the under-served, NuHealth takes its community commitment to very seriously. In fact, bringing essential care, screenings and health information out into the community is one of the most important aspects of our health care philosophy – and a concept that has now become a core element of national health reform. Our top goal is to ensure that every Long Islander can overcome the physical, cultural and financial barriers standing in the way of their good health.

  • NuCare is making it possible for everyone to get the care they need to stay healthy by helping individuals and families find a “medical home” and-low or no-cost coverage.
  • Our Family Health Centers in Elmont, Hempstead, Roosevelt, Roosevelt High School, South Ocean Care and Westbury provide medical homes and bring a broad array of services to the communities where they are needed most.
  • Helping Hands offers medical coverage to unemployed individuals and their families.
