Montefiore Medical Center, the University Hospital and Academic Medical Center for Albert Einstein College of Medicine, is a 1,491-bed medical center including four hospitals (the Montefiore Hospital and The Children's Hospital at Montefiore, both located on the Moses Campus; the Jack D. Weiler Hospital, located on our Einstein Campus; and the Wakefield Hospital, located on our Wakefield Campus), a full-service Emergency Department on our Westchester Square Campus, a large home healthcare agency, the largest school health program in the US, a 23-site medical group practice integrated throughout the Bronx and Westchester; and a care management organization providing services to 179,000 health plan members. Our four main campuses are located in the north Bronx and services are available at many other locations throughout the Bronx and nearby Westchester County.
With its remarkable diversity of race, culture, language, education, immigration and economic status, the Bronx provides an especially rich environment and vibrant community. Nearly 1.3 million people from differing backgrounds and a melting pot of culture, nationalities and traditions, make this area one of New York's most unique. And as an equal opportunity employer, Montefiore's own staff is just as diverse and inclusive.
Wander through the Bronx and find parks, gardens, restaurants and estates juxtaposed with apartment buildings. Montefiore borders Van Cortland Park, the largest inland park in the city with riding stables, cricket, soccer fields, the nation's oldest public golf course and a complete marathon course within its borders. Just a short ride away from Montefiore are Orchard Beach, Yankee Stadium, the Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Gardens, Wave Hill in Riverdale and City Island, a small urban fishing village with access to boat rentals and a restaurant strip that offers some of New York's finest seafood.
Nearby Lehman College Center for the Performing Arts provides access to opera, concerts, theaters and dance. Less than 30 minutes away is Manhattan with Central Park, Wall Street, Chinatown, Times Square, Greenwich Village, Soho, Fifth Avenue and the elegant East Side which are best sampled by walking. Nearby Westchester County offers hiking, biking and cross-country trails and a short distance away is the Long Island Sound and its beaches.
