The LISVH is operated by Stony Brook Medicine and continues to be one of the only nursing homes in the country that is fully integrated into the health and educational mission of a major teaching and research university.  We are proud to advance academic research and to be a place were tomorrow’s geriatric professionals including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, rehabilitation professionals, social workers, dieticians and recreation therapists receive their education and training.
