Expect Excellence for All at South Brooklyn Health

Coming Soon! NYC Health + Hospitals/South Brooklyn Health – a modern health care campus on the grounds of the former NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island – redesigned to serve all of the health care needs of the people of South Brooklyn and neighboring communities.

There’s a lot that will be new. But some things will remain the same:

  • our love and respect for our community
  • our skilled and compassionate health care teams who live and work in the community
  • our mission to provide excellent care for all regardless of immigration status or ability to pay

The New Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospital

The Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospital – an 11-floor tower building – will feature emergency care, state-of-the-art surgical suite, private patient rooms, and light filled space designed to promote healing.
