Two decades ago, on January 1, 1998, The New York Hospital announced its full-asset merger with The Presbyterian Hospital to create NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. In this unprecedented event, two world-class academic healthcare institutions combined to become one of the highest quality medical, teaching, and research institutions in the country. Each hospital shared illustrious histories as providers of exemplary healthcare services, having made innumerable contributions to the field of medicine. The merger resulted in an improved quality of healthcare provided to patients, enhanced availability of clinical services to an expanded population, and lowered costs of services through improved efficiencies.
Today, NewYork-Presbyterian is one of the nation’s most comprehensive, integrated academic healthcare delivery systems dedicated to providing the highest quality, most compassionate care and service to patients in the New York metropolitan area, nationally, and throughout the globe. In collaboration with two renowned medical schools, Weill Cornell Medicine and Columbia University Medical Center, NewYork-Presbyterian is consistently recognized as a leader in medical education, ground-breaking research, and innovative, patient-centered clinical care.
NewYork-Presbyterian has four major divisions:
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is ranked #1 in the New York metropolitan area by U.S.News and World Report and repeatedly named to the Honor Roll of “America’s Best Hospitals.”
NewYork-Presbyterian Regional Hospital Network comprises hospitals and other facilities in the New York metropolitan region.
NewYork-Presbyterian Physician Services connects medical experts with patients in their communities. It includes the NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Groups in Westchester, Queens, and Brooklyn, which increase access to primary care in collaboration with Weill Cornell Medicine Physicians and Columbia Doctors, which deliver specialty care.
