In 1911, a group of concerned women opened a dispensary to serve the poor and needy residents of their Brooklyn neighborhood – thereby planting the seed that would grow into Maimonides Medical Center.
Over the last century, Maimonides has developed into a vital part of the Brooklyn community, as well as a thriving world-class medical center. Our physicians pioneered significant advancements in the field of medicine an, as we move into our second century, Maimonides will continue to reach for new levels of excellence – all the while remaining committed to its mission of providing high-quality, compassionate health care to the diverse patient population in our Brooklyn community.
