Thank you for your support of New York Hospital Queens! Gifts to the hospital provide a direct benefit for our patients, who come to here for the expertise of world class physicians, right here in Queens.
As a continuously growing hospital, New York Hospital Queens has many areas that can benefit from your support. Regardless of where you direct your support, your gift will truly make a difference.
New York Hospital Queens relies on its dedicated community of doctors, employees, patients, visitors, Queens residents and administrators to help facilitate continued excellence. You can make a donation to the hospital to support the purchase of state-of-the-art technology, building and renovating our hospital, recruitment and education programs for a staff of world class doctors, nurses and employees, and so much more.
Research on antibacterial and antiviral agents is conducted through the Infectious Disease Research Laboratory (antibiotic mechanisms and resistance) and the Special Care Clinic (anti-HIV therapeutic agents). The fully accredited Infectious Disease Fellowship Training Program at New York Hospital Queens was established in 1988 by James Rahal, M.D., director, until his passing in 2011. Through the research laboratory, infectious disease fellows are prepared for clinical investigation of problems in pathogenesis, diagnosis, epidemiology and treatment of human infectious diseases.

In memory of his lifelong passion for teaching, the Dr. William C. Cooper NYHQ Eye Center Education Fund has been established. Dr. Cooper was a member of the New York Hospital Queens’ medical staff for more than 17 years, prior to his retirement fall 2010. He was the first director of the Queens Eye Center and was instrumental in modernizing and expanding the NYHQ Eye Service. He also served as Professor of Ophthalmology at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
You can also give to honor a doctor or nurse whose service you'd like to recognize. Your gift of any amount will open new doors in outstanding patient care, research, clinical education and community outreach at New York Hospital Queens.
You can also give back to the hospital and the community by becoming a volunteer and helping patients, doctors and hospital staff. Expand your knowledge base by learning about everything from business models to medical interpreting. Volunteering opportunities are available for high school and college students as well as adults.
Another way to volunteer is to join the Women’s Auxiliary, an organization that raises funds for programs that benefit the hospital and the health of the community through sponsoring events and services.
Donations of blood, organs and tissue also help the hospital and our patients. You can donate blood at our Blood Donor Center or help plan a blood drive at your community-based location. Your blood donation may be directed to a loved one or can help support our hospital blood bank. Every day, blood donations help our cancer patients, people with hemophilia or infections, and victims of traumatic accidents. When you donate blood, you are giving the gift of life.
You can enroll to become an organ donor and literally make the difference between life and death for one of the 90,000 people every year who need an organ transplant, or one of the 700,000 to 800,000 people who need a tissue transplant. By enrolling in the Donate Life Registry, you give legal consent for the recovery of your organs and tissues for the purposes of transplantation and/or research at the time of your death.
