Over a century of excellent service

Since 1911, Maimonides has been a cornerstone of the Brooklyn community and is the largest hospital in Brooklyn. Over the last century, we’ve become a world-class care center and a vital part of New York City. From the 1st heart transplant in the U.S. to the 1st hospital-based Clinical Simulation Center in the Northeast, we are on the cutting edge of innovation.

We are a Top 10 Hospital in the Nation for Clinical Excellence according to data published by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

A culture of innovation

We commit to continuous innovation by working with new medical technology and embracing a culture of teamwork within our disciplines. Our experienced team of board-certified doctors and clinicians adheres to rigorous protocols for patient safety so we can provide the best care for you and your loved ones. The American Hospital Association has recognized Maimonides for implementing advanced computer technology to reduce the risk of errors for more than 2 decades.
