Montefiore is ranked among the top hospitals nationally and regionally by U.S. News & World Report. For more than 100 years we have been innovating new treatments, new procedures and new approaches to patient care, producing stellar outcomes and raising the bar for medical centers in the region and around the world. As we build on this momentum, we continue to advance the practice of medicine and set the standard for excellence.
The mission of Montefiore is to heal, to teach, to discover and to advance the health of the communities we serve.
From its beginning in 1884, as a facility for the care of patients with tuberculosis and other chronic illnesses, to the new millennium, Montefiore has been at the forefront of patient care, research and education and steadfast commitment to its community. Leading the nation in applications of technology to heathcare, medical training, and the Accountable Organization practice, Montefiore is also the most PA driven hospital in the country: the first hospital in the country to hire a PA, with more PA subspecialties, and employing more PAs than any hospital in the country.
