Roy J. Zuckerberg

Creating a vision for a stronger tomorrow drove Roy Zuckerberg’s extraordinary career in finance and his decades-long commitment to Northwell Health.

Roy joined Goldman Sachs in the late 1960s and built the investment banks’ now extensive portfolio of affluent clients during his tenure as Goldman Sach’s longest serving partner. After retiring from his successful professional career, Roy devoted even more of his time and talents to philanthropy.

A former Chairman of the North Shore – LIJ Board, Roy was an early leader of Long Island Jewish Medical Center and played an integral role in its merger with North Shore University Hospital. Over time, he has dedicated himself to a number of hospitals and programs, spanning the Northwell footprint.

In 2009, Roy made an extraordinary gift to Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJ) that led to the development of the Zuckerberg Pavilion and transformed the way we serve our patients.

The 10-story glass tower represented the largest expansion in the hospital’s history, and since the Zuckerberg Pavilion serves as the new entryway for all services, it’s become the new face of LIJ.

The 57,000 square foot Zuckerberg Pavilion includes a two-story lobby and 60 private patient rooms for orthopedic, urological, thoracic and surgical oncology services, along with a physical therapy gym.

“To have the facilities we have in this building really makes the whole (patient) experience a lot more pleasant,” Roy said at the 2011 celebration marking its opening.
