The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is a not-for-profit research institute and the collaborative research enterprise for Northwell Health, a fully integrated health system headquartered in New Hyde Park, New York.  Northwell Health is the second largest non-sectarian health system in the United States.  It consists of 22 owned and affiliated hospitals, with more than 6,000 patient beds, serving a catchment population of 6.5 million people and annual inpatient discharges of more than 215,000.

The Feinstein Institute has eleven centers of excellence, each focused on investigating human disease ranging from sepsis to autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer. Investigators work collaboratively in state-of-the-art laboratories that provide the infrastructure needed to conduct groundbreaking disease-oriented research. The intellectual environment at the Feinstein is rich, collaborative and diverse and ranks in the top 10th percentile of all National Institutes of Health grants awarded to research centers.

The research facilities of the Feinstein Institute are located primarily on the campuses of two major tertiary Northwell hospitals on Long Island, North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center (which includes the Cohen Children’s Hospital and the Zucker-Hillside Psychiatric Hospital), that total more than 1,700 beds and are located 1.5 miles apart, while clinical research extends throughout Northwell Health.  The Institute maintains approximately 180,000 ft. sq. of dedicated research space, including laboratories, an AAALAC-accredited animal facility, research core facilities, and a clinical research service core with support staff for patient studies to assist with the conduct of clinical trials.  The Feinstein supports a centralized health system IRB and a Grants Management Office for pre and post/award services.

How to request a change for a program or space

Changes in the facility environment or operations that affect the security of Protected Health Information (PHI) and Electronic Protected Health Information (EPHI) in the workplace must be review and approved before they are implemented .  Changes in the environment and operations include, without limitation:

  1. Technical Environment (Hardware, Software and Media)
  2. Non-Technical Environment (Physical Location and Facilities)
  3. Operations (People and Process)

All changes in the non-technical or operating environment are processed by the research business unit through the submission of an electronic request for changes are available by clicking here.  The purpose of these requests is to assure all changes to the environment are reviewed and documented.  NO changes should be implemented or deployed prior to written approval, unless the change in environment is necessary due to an emergency or to eliminate an immediate hazard.
