The Regina McGinn Education Center opened in 2010 as a center of excellence, innovation and continuous learning at Staten Island University Hospital. The Education Center boasts the state-of-the-art Patient Safety Institute with a patient simulation center and Diabetic Education Center. Additionally, there is a 250-seat auditorium and five high-tech conference rooms. Some of the Center’s many features include electronic, campus-wide links capable of transmitting live medical procedures from the hospital’s operating and radiology suites, as well as linking the South site and other hospitals and medical education sites. The Center is also home to an ever-expanding digital medical library, as well as an executive boardroom that doubles as an emergency command center.

The Center was built to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Regina McGinn who, at the time, was Staten Island University Hospital ’s Associate Director of Medicine and wife of The Heart Institute’s Medical Director, Dr. Joseph McGinn. The beloved physician and dedicated mother of four first envisioned such a center in 1997, four years before her untimely passing. Among Dr. Regina McGinn ’s many achievements, she is credited with reforming Staten Island University Hospital ’s internal medicine residency program.
