About St. John’s Episcopal Hospital

110 Years of Caring

Welcome to St. John's Episcopal Hospital, the only full-service acute care hospital on the Rockaway peninsula. We are an active and growing provider of comprehensive medical, surgical, emergency and diagnostic services for residents of The Rockaways, the Five Towns, southern Queens and southwestern Nassau County.

St. John's is a 240-bed community hospital affiliated with Episcopal Health Services and welcomes people of all faiths. Our care team includes more than 400 physicians and 1,500 employees and many committed volunteers.

The hospital's mission includes a commitment to compassion, to improving the health of the community and to sustaining an environment of excellence where healthcare services are delivered efficiently and effectively, regardless of ability to pay.

St. John's Episcopal Hospital is fully accredited by The Joint Commission and is a teaching affiliate of SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. The hospital is also a New York State Designated Stroke Center, a recipient of the Gold-Plus "Get with the Guidelines®–Stroke" Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association, and is a certified emergency heart care station. St. John's Episcopal Hospital is also designated as a 911/Level II trauma receiving hospital by the New York City Department of Health.

Building for the Future

Work is underway to renovate and enhance the hospital and its campus. We are actively engaged in raising significant capital to fund a new and expanded Emergency Department and an enhanced Labor & Delivery Unit, renovated ambulatory surgery and critical care units, and extensive upgrades to the hospital's infrastructure.

Our Mission

The mission of the Episcopal Health Services Inc. of the Diocese of Long Island is to provide quality health care with an emphasis on patient safety through its hospital, ambulatory care facilities, nursing homes and continuing medical education, recognizing the emerging life-care needs of the communities served.

The mission shall be overseen by the Bishop of Long Island and guided by the teachings and traditions of the Episcopal Church. An essential element of this ministry is pastoral care provided by a chaplaincy program sensitive to the faiths and traditions of those served.
