There are whole districts in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx that operate as medical cities at the highest level of biomedical research as well as clinical facilities for patients. Bellevue Hospital, New York Hospital, New York University School of Medicine, Sloan Kettering, Mount Sinai, Weill Cornell, the Bronx VA Medical Center, Albert Einstein College, SUNY Downstate Medical Center, New York Presbyterian/ Columbia Medical Center, and The Rockefeller University, just to mention some of the best known among them. They are all producers of new knowledge from basic biology to bedside medicine. Handling and eradicating illnesses of epidemiological scale are among their spectacular successes.
