Harlem Hospital Center is and has been a true bastion for its community for over a century now, since its inception back in 1887. These days, it is a 400-bed, multicultural oriented health care facility and the largest in Harlem, NY, fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). It houses an award winning Tuberculosis Clinic, one of the only three in the country, and a nationally recognized Asthma Center, one of the only six in the U.S. In addition to this, Harlem Hospital Center is also a teaching institution affiliated with the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, and is a part of New York Health and Hospitals Corporation, serving not only the local residents, but also those of nearby areas such as Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx.
Its latest, $50 million expansion occurred in 1998, when a new Ambulatory Care Pavilion and a new magnetic resonance unit were opened, along with renovation of the neonatal intensive care unit.
As stated earlier, Harlem Hospital Center has become renowned nationwide due in no small part to its many specialty services and programs: Asthma Prevention Project (conducting research on this condition since 1991), Level I Trauma Center (to attend life threatening issues), Pediatric Injury Prevention Program (aimed to reduce childhood injuries) and the Program for AIDS initiatives (providing screening, treatment an inpatient care).
