Lenox Hill Hospital Celebrates 150 Years of Service

January 1, 2007

In 1857, the year Lenox Hill Hospital was founded, James Buchanan was our nation's 15th President and Elisha Otis' first elevator was installed in NYC. Since then, Lenox Hill Hospital's physicians, nurses and caring staff have touched the lives of countless thousands of patients and their families while earning a national reputation for providing high quality medical care, training new physicians, contributing to progress in research, and offering innovative community outreach programs.

Today, Lenox Hill Hospital is well-known for cardiovascular care, orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine, maternal and child health, bariatric surgery and gastroenterology, among other services. Approximately 325,000 patients are treated annually, including 40,000 Emergency Department visits and 20,000 ambulance and paramedic calls.
