Centers of Excellence

NewYork-Presbyterian is committed to providing the best possible patient care. Our superb physicians and other healthcare professionals have helped form Centers of Excellence, which you can read more about below. Please note that this is only a partial listing. Additional centers and institutes can be found on the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center Web sites.

AIDS Care

The Center for Special Studies at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell and the AIDS Care Program at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia provide comprehensive care for men, women, and children with HIV/AIDS. Both sites are New York State- and National Institutes of Health-designated AIDS Centers.

Burn Center

The William Randolph Hearst Burn Center, located at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, is the largest and busiest burn center in the nation, treating about 900 inpatients and 3500 outpatients annually. Its research in burn treatment has led to significant improvements in the survival rate and quality of life for adults and children.

Complementary Care Center

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is one of the first academic medical centers to investigate alternative methods of healing, including biofeedback and aromatherapy.

Digestive Diseases

Patients benefit from the collaboration of gastroenterologists, hepatologists, surgeons, and a supportive care team from services including nursing, nutrition, genetics, and social work.

Gene Therapy

Innovative research programs at both NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell and NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia have made recent advances in treating conditions such as cardiac ischemia and atherosclerosis, breast cancer, and cystic fibrosis.

Minimal Access Surgery

The Minimal Access Surgery Center of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital serves as a premier center for treatment, research, training, and development of innovative techniques in this field--in which many surgical procedures can be performed through small incisions with specially designed surgical instruments. These procedures result in less pain, less scarring, and shorter recovery time. Staffed by a team of experts, the Center provides inpatient and ambulatory care in many surgical subspecialties, including general surgery, gynecology, pediatric surgery, thoracic surgery, urology, and colorectal surgery.

Preventive Medicine

Drawing on the expertise of all its Centers of Excellence, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital has developed a comprehensive and coordinated approach to the prevention of disease. From physical examinations aimed at corporate executives to community wellness seminars, the Hospital and its physicians provide leadership in preventive medicine.

Reproductive Medicine and Infertility

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital has world-renowned programs specializing in infertility and assisted reproduction at both NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell and NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia. At both centers, leading physicians and scientists in reproductive medicine use innovative and cutting-edge technology for the comprehensive treatment of infertility in women and men, achieving success rates that are among the best in the world.

Trauma Center

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital offers both a Level 1 Adult Trauma Unit and a regional Pediatric Trauma Unit.

Vascular Medicine

The Vascular Care Centers of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital have dedicated teams of vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, cardiologists, hematologists, nurses, technologists, and others who are able to treat all forms of vascular disease with proven therapies and, when appropriate, exciting new investigational modalities.

Women's Health

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is among the first hospitals to establish special centers and programs for women's health. NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, where the Pap test was developed, recently established the state-of-the-art Iris Cantor Women's Health Center. The Hospital has six WIC centers (a federal and state program for low-income women, infants, and children at risk of poor nutrition) representing the largest such nonprofit program in the United States. The Center for Women's Health at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia Eastside also is among the top women's centers in the U.S.
