Montefiore Medical Center’s mission is to heal, to teach, to discover and to advance the health of the communities we serve. Established in 1884 as a hospital for patients with chronic illnesses, our history is rich with pioneering medical firsts and research, as well as an exceptional dedication to the community. The majority of Montefiore’s patients are Hispanic since the majority of the people living in the community we serve is Hispanic.
The Bronx was New York City’s first borough to have a majority of people of color and is the only borough with a Latino majority.
