Financial Services and Health Affairs
The mission of the Health Affairs Office is to support SUNY's academic health enterprise, which includes Four Academic Health Centers and Three University Hospitals: University at Buffalo, SUNY Downstate (includes University Hospital), Stony Brook University (includes University Hospital), SUNY Upstate (includes University Hospital), College of Optometry, and Long Island State Veterans Home.
SUNY’s four academic medical centers generate 1/3 of all SUNY research dollars, and on average, return $10 for every dollar invested in cutting-edge research. They provide nearly 25,000 direct jobs, educate nearly 7,000 students, and provide health care services to more than one million patients throughout New York State.
SUNY's three University Hospitals annually updates a multi-year strategic plan, providing a longer term projection of hospital operations and the impact of capital and operating initiatives. As public hospitals, they each provide a full spectrum of patient care, from primary care to highly specialized, technologically advanced (tertiary) care.
