St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, University Hospital of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, is a 1,076 bed full-service 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 a few blocks south of Lincoln Center at Tenth Avenue and 59th Street. Residents train in recently constructed state-of-the-art facilities: a 10-story building at the St. Luke's Division and a 14-story building at the Roosevelt Division.
St. Luke's-Roosevelt provides a sophisticated clinical and academic environment in which physicians practice superior medicine, train more than 480 residents and fellows in 40 clinical specialties and carry out innovative research. The Hospital Center is widely respected for high quality clinical care and its contributions to research in cardiology, gastroenterology, metabolic disorders and many other areas.
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. It provides much of the inpatient, outpatient and emergency medical care for more than half a million residents of the West Side of Manhattan, as well as for patients throughout the New York metropolitan region and beyond - admitting approximately 44,000 patients, serving more than 300,000 outpatients, and providing emergency care for over 100,000 patients every year.
