As the academic medical center and University Hospital for Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center is nationally recognized for clinical excellence—breaking new ground in research, training the next generation of healthcare leaders, and delivering science-driven, patient-centered care. Montefiore is ranked among the top hospitals nationally and regionally by U.S. News & World Report. For more than 100 years we have been innovating new treatments, new procedures and new approaches to patient care, producing stellar outcomes and raising the bar for medical centers in the region and around the world. As we build on this momentum, we continue to advance the practice of medicine and set the standard for excellence. The mission of Montefiore is to heal, to teach, to discover and to advance the health of the communities we serve. From its beginning in 1884, as a facility for the care of patients with tuberculosis and other chronic illnesses, to the new millennium, Montefiore has been at the forefront of patient care, research and education and steadfast commitment to its community. We provide coordinated, compassionate and leading-edge care designed to reach people when and where they need it most. Through highly integrated teams of physicians, nurses, social workers, mental health professionals and other caregivers, we have created an innovative, seamless system of care focused around the patient. At the intersection of Einstein science and Montefiore medicine is our commitment to scientific inquiry. This commitment has resulted in the creation of the Montefiore-Einstein Centers of Excellence in cancer care, cardiovascular services, transplantation and children’s health, where nationally recognized investigators and multidisciplinary clinical teams collaborate to develop and deliver advanced, innovative care. Montefiores partnership with Einstein advances clinical and translational research to accelerate the pace at which new discoveries become the treatments and therapies that benefit patients. Together, the two institutions are among 38 academic medical centers nationwide to be awarded a prestigious Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) by the National Institutes of Health. The second-largest medical residency program in the country, with 1,251 residents and fellows across 89 programs, Montefiore provides the doctors of tomorrow a unique opportunity for education and training in one of the most diverse urban areas in the country — one where the population is global, the disease burden is high, and the need for quality care is great. The partnership is further strengthened by the dual appointments of faculty and physicians across both organizations—enhancing synergies and collaborations for research, teaching and patient care. Since 1996, Montefiore has developed advanced models of care management to help patients, especially those with chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart failure and mental illness, achieve better health and improved wellbeing in a cost effective way. Montefiore goes beyond fragmented fee-for-service payments, assuming total responsibility for the quality and costs of care for some of our sickest patients. Through CMO, Montefiore Care Management, we use a global prepayment or similar strategies to manage care for 200,000 individuals over the continuum, including hospital care, rehabilitation, outpatient care, professional services, home care, mental health counseling, community-based services, remote patient monitoring and many other programs. Our leadership in coordinating care across multiple settings has earned us federal recognition from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as a Pioneer Accountable Care Organization. Montefiores ACO is one of only 32 organizations in the nation, as well as the only one in New York State, to operate under this new model of providing Medicare beneficiaries with higher quality care, while reducing expenditures through enhanced care coordination.
