The Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Center at Beth Israel Medical Center was originally established in 1977 at St. Vincent’s Hospital and joined department of pulmonary medicine at Beth Israel in June 2010. That same year, the Center received full re-accreditation from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) and was designated as a Cystic Fibrosis Specialty Center by the Department of Health.
As one of the distinguished centers in the United States that meets the standards for accreditation set by The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the CF Center at Beth Israel adheres to the CFF’s guidelines for cystic fibrosis care. Our expertly trained and experienced staff has cared for hundreds of CF patients who hail from all over the world. Patients and their families rely on our accurate diagnostic capabilities, state-of-the-art treatment approach, and the comprehensive supportive services we provide.
Each patient is monitored by a multidisciplinary team of health professionals that includes pulmonologists, pediatricians, social workers, gastroenterologists, nutritionists, physical therapists, genetic counselors and exercise and complementary therapy experts. We pride ourselves on the excellent patient care and personal attention we provide, which is why all of these services are available on-site at our Center and are provided in a newly renovated facility.
In addition to comprehensive medical care, our Center participates in community outreach and education programs. As a member of CF Foundation Therapeutics’ prestigious Therapeutics Development Network, cutting-edge research and clinical trials for investigational new drugs and therapies are ongoing at the Beth Israel CF Center.
