OUR HISTORY

Maimonides Medical Center was officially named in 1966 after Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon, a brilliant 12th-century philosopher who laid the foundation for the modern medical training of physicians. Rabbi Maimon, better known as Maimonides, was deeply committed to cultural tolerance and humane care, in addition to high medical standards. It was he who said, “The physician should not treat the disease, but rather the patient who is suffering from it.” At Maimonides Medical Center, we have practiced our namesake’s philosophy with an unmatched passion for close to 100 years.

Maimonides was founded as the New Utrecht Dispensary in 1911. In 1919, it absorbed several smaller dispensaries and became Israel Hospital of Brooklyn. In 1920 it merged with Zion hospital and became United Israel Zion Hospital. New facilities were built to accommodate the growing patient needs (the building that is now our Administration building on Tenth Avenue). In 1947, Maimonides Hospital was formed by the merger of United Israel Zion and Beth Moses hospitals.

MISSION STATEMENT

Maimonides Medical Center is dedicated to fostering healthy communities.  We provide high quality, compassionate patient care and comprehensive community services.  As a premier academic medical center, we are devoted to educating health care professionals, patients, families, employees and the communities we serve.  We conduct research that improves the lives of our patients.  We welcome patients of all faiths, and at the same time remain uniquely committed to serving the special healthcare needs of the Orthodox Jewish community, whose religious and cultural traditions help guide the provision of Maimonides services.
