Northeast College of Health Sciences is proud to announce it is working toward the establishment of an official Long Island branch campus at its current Levittown, N.Y., facility.
As part of this transformation, the College is considering adding a future second cohort of its renowned Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) program at the location. Throughout, the Levittown facility will continue to house the College’s Levittown Health Center and Frank J. Nicchi School of Continuing Education.
This development marks a significant milestone in the College’s history, demonstrating its unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional chiropractic education and addressing the evolving needs of the health care industry.
Since its establishment in 1919 in the Manhattan borough of New York City, Northeast College has maintained a strong connection to the New York metro area. By planning to reposition the Levittown facilities as a new campus and introduce a second branch of the D.C. program, the College aims to enhance accessibility to chiropractic education for a wide range of individuals. The New York metro region, known for its dense population, has experienced a notable increase in the demand for chiropractors. This expansion aligns with the growing job opportunities in the region while meeting the needs of future students.
The College hopes to offer one start date/cohort of the DC program per year at the Long Island campus, featuring the comprehensive chiropractic curriculum for which the College has become known. Pending approvals from the New York State Education Department (NYSED), the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE), and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), as well as the completion of necessary facility renovations, the Northeast D.C. program could be offered on Long Island as early as Fall 2024.
Michael Mestan, DC, EdD, president of Northeast College of Health Sciences, expressed his enthusiasm for this transformative step: “This is a historic opportunity for our College, bringing us back to our roots while allowing us to grow and thrive, just as our founders envisioned. Northeast College is proud to embark on this next phase in our longstanding commitment to delivering excellence in every aspect of chiropractic and health sciences education.”
Northeast College is excited about the prospects that the Long Island campus presents. By expanding its presence and diversifying its educational offerings, the College remains at the forefront of chiropractic education, empowering aspiring health care professionals to make a positive impact on the health and wellness of their diverse communities.
