About Montefiore Medical Center

Founded in 1884, Montefiore is one of the largest healthcare systems in the U.S. It is located in the northern section of the Bronx, 30 minutes from Times Square by train. Each year, Montefiore Medical Center, the University Hospital for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, trains more than 1,000 residents in a range of medical and dental specialties. Montefiore ranks among the top one percent of all U.S. hospitals for investments in medical innovation and cutting edge technology. Over the past decade, Montefiore has invested more than $125 million in information systems, making us a national leader in developing innovative applications of technology to medicine. It is one of the very few hospitals in the country to be 100-percent computerized for ordering prescription drugs and tests, and for reporting the results.

Montefiore has long recognized that diversity creates strength and promotes greater understanding of patients and their needs. It was the first to invite women to join the staff (1914) and to welcome African-American residents (1930). Today Montefiore is proud to have staff—and patients—from every corner of the world.
