NYC Health + Hospitals has appointed Khoi Luong, DO, senior vice president of post-acute care for the public health system, the nation’s largest.
Luong oversees all aspects of operations and patient care provided in five skilled nursing facilities, a long-term acute care hospital, and multiple short-term rehabilitation and adult day healthcare programs.

“Post-acute care and geriatric medicine are passions of mine,” Luong said. “I look forward to working with post-acute leaders in providing high-quality and compassionate care to NYC residents while strengthening our partnerships throughout the health system and community.”
Luong earned a bachelor’s degree in microbiology and cell science from the University of Florida and a degree of osteopathic medicine from Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
