Harlem Hospital Center, branded as NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem, is a 272-bed, public teaching hospital affiliated with Columbia University. The hospital was established to provide healthcare to the citizens of the neighborhood . Initially, the hospital served as a holding area for patients to be transferred to Ward’s Island, Randall’s Island and Bellevue Hospital, New York City. With the wave of the African Americans that moved to New York after the World War, the hospital soon outgrew its initial building. After acquiring land, a new building opened on April 13, 1907. The hospital developed a teaching program that is affiliated with Columbia University, and has continued to serve the Harlem neighborhood since its inception.

Felton National Tuberculosis Center, that served as a premier Model for TB control nationwide.
