The Brooklyn Hospital Center puts the heart in healing!

We strive to provide the highest quality healthcare that is compassionate, community-based and accessible to all – regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.

That’s just one of the reasons why our hospital was recently ranked the 33rd best out of 207 Regional Hospitals in New York State and the 30th best of New York Metro’s Regional Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report!

We have many more plans in store, but we can’t do this alone. Your generosity and support of the 2024 Founders Ball gala helps us continually evolve and improve, all while caring for patients with heart!
