Welcome. This website chronicles the evolution of Maimonides Medical Center from storefront medical dispensary to world-class academic community hospital. We invite you to explore 100 years of medical care history in Brooklyn, told here through photographs, narrative, and the words of those who were part of this remarkable story. Decade after decade, you will learn how dedicated people in the community took a modest vision for giving the people in and nearby Borough Park a quality medical care facility, and turned it into the sophisticated medical center Maimonides is today.
This centennial book website is designed for you, our visitors, to both read and to react. We hope you will click through to download each chapter of the book to get the full story experience. We also hope that you will take advantage of our interactive feature where you can add your comments, offer new information and share your memories and photos of Maimonides past. We have a great story to tell but we truly hope you will add to it.
We invite you to return here often as we release additional chapters of the unfolding centennial story, beginning now with the first chapter, "In the Beginning."
Look for the print publication of "Maimonides: One Hundred Years of Compassionate Care" later in 2011.
