Mt. Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital, is a 1,076-bed, full-service community and tertiary care hospital. St. Luke’s-Roosevelt was formed in 1979 by a merger of St. Luke’s Hospital, adjacent to the campus of Columbia University, and The Roosevelt Hospital, located two blocks west of Columbus Circle. The St. Luke’s and Roosevelt Hospitals, established in 1846 and 1871, respectively, brought to their merger extraordinary records of medical “firsts” and commitment to their patients.
St. Luke’s-Roosevelt also is widely respected for high quality clinical care and for its contributions to research. Throughout its history St. Luke’s-Roosevelt also has placed strong emphasis on responding with compassion and sensitivity to the unique needs of the communities it serves, including areas whose residents have multiple social and economic challenges. The Hospital Center’s ability to serve these populations is enhanced through relationships with groups including the William F. Ryan Community Health Center and the Council Health Center, as well as through school-based clinics at area high schools. St. Luke’s-Roosevelt initiates and supports a wide range of community health-focused activities and maintains an extensive network of relationships with churches and community groups throughout the West Side and Upper Manhattan.
