Founded in 1846 and 1871 respectively, St. Luke’s and Roosevelt hospitals brought to their merger extraordinary records of medical firsts and a shared tradition of outstanding and compassionate care for patients. A University Hospital of Columbia’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, St. Luke’s-Roosevelt continues to be recognized for high quality clinical care and for its contributions to medical research.
Both institutions were founded through philanthropy. Roosevelt was established through a million dollar bequest of James Henry Roosevelt and St. Luke's was built using funds contributed by local residents who pooled their resources for 14 years before having enough to lay the cornerstone and begin construction. With reduced public funding and limited foundation support, patient-inspired philanthropy is an invaluable alternative to cover much of the deserted areas of social need. Behavioral Health has long been one of these areas.
Each and every one of us knows someone that over their lifetime has needed the help of a therapist or even medicine to help with a mental health issue. Our research division is constantly working on new cutting edge treatments to make life better for these patients. You may be inspired to give to the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health on the basis of the experience of care given to a family member and always remember your donation will help to make New York City a better place for all of us, including children, families, and the elderly.
Philanthropic support from our friends and neighbors makes a difference in most everything we do. Your donation will foster greater social efforts to ameliorate the problems in funding for mental health research and treatment.
There are several options below for you to consider when making a donation. Our Special Projects Director would be more than happy to discuss other areas of need with you. For more information, please call (212) 523-7342.
