Roosevelt Hospital, established in 1871, is widely respected for our high quality patient care, clinical instruction and innovative medical contributions. Serving the West Side and Upper Manhattan, Roosevelt is an academic affiliate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. We are a 505-bed full-service community and tertiary hospital.
From our beginning, Roosevelt Hospital has supported community health-focused activities, working with churches and community groups. Always serving the neighborhood, Roosevelt Hospital even offers a special wing of private rooms that feature deluxe amenities. Just recently, in 2010, Jacques Moritz, the Director of Gynecology at Roosevelt Hospital, developed the first permanent contraception for women, using non-invasive radiofrequency energy.
In 1979, Roosevelt merged with St. Luke’s Hospital. They are two separate hospitals that are part of one medical center. Each is distinguished in its own right.
