She completed her residency at SUNY Health Scirnce Center in Syracuse and a fellowship at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle, WA.

“We are thrilled to welcome back Dr. Levy. She brings with her many years of patient-focused care with an emphasis on exemplary quality outcomes,” said Carolyn Quinn, RN, senior vice president of pediatrics at Northwell and executive director of Cohen Childen’s Medical Center. “Dr Levy is a welcomed addition to our executive leadership team.”
