  • Eight private antepartum testing rooms
  • 15 ultrasound rooms for on-site prenatal diagnosis and treatment procedures
  • A 60-bed Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – the highest recognition possible in newbown intensive care, and the first in New York City to have an MRI scanner and operating room located within the unit

We are pleased to announce that NewYork-Presbyterian has launched the Dalio Center for Health Justice, dedicated to understanding and improving health equity, addressing health justice, and driving action that results in measurable improvements in health outcomes for all.

The Dalio Center for Health Justice is the result of a $50 million grant from Dalio Philanthropies, whose founder Ray Dalio is a NewYork-Presbyterian Trustee. Among the Center’s priorities will be reducing health disparities that disproportionately affect communities of color.

The Dalio Center for Health Justice reflects our shared commitment to proactively addressing health disparities and the systemic inequities that create conditions for poor health. The Center will be a convener, collaborator and grantor, bringing together renowned experts in diverse fields to fuel change and support health justice among NewYork-Presbyterian team members, our patients and communities, and ultimately local and national policy. It will be led by Dr. Julia Iyasere, who brings significant experience in medicine and has championed diversity and inclusion throughout her career.

The Center will promote health justice and address the health disparities of our employees, patients and communities through research, health education and programs that foster equity in clinical operations and enhance the culturally sensitive care provided by NewYork-Presbyterian. It will focus on comprehensive analysis to understand more fully social determinants of health, creating a robust and diverse health equity database to inform the Center’s work in developing community-based initiatives, advocating locally and nationally for change, seeking grants, and producing an institutional equity report. It will also focus on examining and addressing unconscious bias in medicine and clinical trials. The Center will inaugurate a Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity Symposium to encourage discussions across the organization, highlight faculty research and innovations, and provide a career development forum for underrepresented minority fellows and residents, with the goal of producing tangible solutions to health disparities.

NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, a cornerstone of community care since 1881, is continuing its tradition of excellent care with the opening of the Center for Community Health (CCH), an ambulatory care facility, which opened in 2021. The six-story, 400,000-square-foot CCH - the largest ambulatory care center in Brooklyn - provides the highest-quality preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic care and will provide Brooklynites access to state-of-the-art outpatient services in one convenient location.

The extraordinary care provided in the CCH will be delivered by multispecialty clinical teams and world-class experts, including physicians from Weill Cornell Medicine, in a welcoming environment designed to promote well-being. The CCH’s comprehensive services will include:

  • Ambulatory surgery
  • Comprehensive cancer services
