About the Center

We’re at the forefront of an improved healthcare landscape.

Our Mission

The Center for Health Innovation serves as a regional resource and academic partner to communities seeking to promote a culture of health across Long Island. We define health as more than physical well-being, or absence of disease or injury. It is a constellation of factors—economic, social, political, ecological, cultural, psychological and physical—that comprise healthy, high-quality lives for individuals and communities.

As longtime pioneers in health education and research, Adelphi’s faculty have developed preeminent programs in nursing, psychology, and other fields related to physical, mental, and community health. We have an extensive history of expertise in health scholarship, outreach, and education, and we launched the Center for Health Innovation to unite our various healthcare programs and services with the goal of improving public health and the regional healthcare landscape.

We propose to:

  • Foster practitioner-focused, interdisciplinary academic programming and grant-seeking activities
  • Ensure that clinical services are aligned with regional needs
  • Support long-term institutional goals and community partnerships
  • Develop shared areas of relevant research as a thought leader
