NYU Langone Health is an academic medical center located in New York City, New York, United States, affiliated with New York University. NYU Langone comprises NYU Grossman School of Medicine and several inpatient facilities: Tisch Hospital, Kimmel Pavilion, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, Hassenfeld Children's Hospital, NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn and NYU Langone Hospital-Long Island.[1][2] It is also home to Rusk Rehabilitation. NYU Langone Health operates over 350 locations in the New York area.[3] The Manhattan campus of NYU Langone Health overlooks the East River.[4]


The hospital was originally named NYU Medical Center and was changed to NYU Langone Medical Center in 2008 after a $200 million gift from Kenneth and Elaine Langone.[5] Kenneth Langone is the chairman of the board of trustees. In November 2008, $150 million donation was given for the construction of the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion in honor of the late real estate developer and philanthropist Martin Kimmel.[6] The hospital officially changed its name to NYU Langone Health in 2017.[7]

With a tradition of responding to urgent public health issues, the faculty and alumni of NYU Grossman School of Medicine have contributed to the control of tuberculosis, diphtheria, yellow fever, and venereal disease,[8] the development of vaccines for hepatitis B, polio, and cancer,[9] advances in the treatment and prevention of stroke and heart disease, the introduction of minimally invasive surgical techniques, and others. In the early 1980s, clinicians and researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, including dermatologists, infectious disease specialists, immunologists, oncologists, and epidemiologists, were among the first to identify an alarming increase in Kaposi's sarcoma,[10] opportunistic infections, and immune system failure among young gay men, and alert health authorities to an imminent health catastrophe, soon to be known as HIV/AIDS.
