Our History

We’ve been around since 1848, first as a facility for New York’s Jewish population, and now serving New Yorkers of all faiths and backgrounds. We have a proud history – we were the first facility of our kind in the United States to have a full-time professional social worker, the first to have a full-time in-house doctor and the first to have a teaching system to train professionals in caring for older adults.
