Saving Lives, Improving Quality of Life
New York City is home to 60 hospitals across its five boroughs. With so many options, individuals and their families choose Columbia University Medical Center to receive care from leading physicians who are guided by the latest scientific advances and research.
Our patients reflect the diversity that is the hallmark of New York City. From every walk of life and every means, patients come to CUMC for care that is both skilled and comprehensive. Our patients hail from our local community, as well as from across the city and around the country for medical attention that has been recognized around the world.
CUMC is among the premier academic medical institutions in the nation, affiliated with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, as well as health care institutions in the tri-state area and overseas.
Gifts to support our patient care programs fund vital resources that ensure continued excellence, not only in the quality of care, but also, the positive experience patients and their families have received at CUMC for generations. In fact, many individuals who support our programs are grateful patients who have had extraordinary experiences in care and healing from our leading physicians—and are inspired to be part of all that we do for patients and their families.
