Bronx-Lebanon Health Care System
For more than 120 years, Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center has provided quality and compassionate health care to those in need. Today, Bronx-Lebanon is the largest voluntary, not-for-profit health care system serving the South and Central Bronx, with 972-beds at two hospital divisions, a comprehensive psychiatric program, two specialized long-term care facilities, and an extensive BronxCare Network of medical practices, including the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Health Center, that is now providing one million visits annually.

Bronx-Lebanon has consistently moved forward as an economic anchor and engine for positive change, with more than $300 million in capital projects infused into the Bronx economy. Additionally, its New Directions Community Revitalization Initiative resulted in the completion of 16 homes, 84 condominium units, and a 51-unit low income housing project for senior citizens.

Bronx-Lebanon is also one of the few hospitals in New York that, by the end of 2013, will be fully computerized, with a complete inpatient and outpatient electronic medical record. In looking to the future, Bronx-Lebanon is directing its efforts towards expanding facilities and adding services in response to the needs of the Bronx community.

  • A new $42 million, 60,000 square foot Ambulatory Care Facility will be completed in 2014.
  • A new $34 million, 56,000 square foot Life Recovery Center for chemical dependency services will be completed in 2014.
  • A new Neurosurgery Service was established.
  • A major ER modernization was completed, with expanded registration and treatment areas, as well as a short stay cardiac observation area and new code room.

It is in the Bronx community where we see the importance of fulfilling the hospitalís essential role as ďDoctor to the Community.Ē Bronx-Lebanon regularly provides free checkups and screenings at schools, nursing homes, senior citizen centers, and churches, among many other community organizations.

Its numerous outreach programs are also educating the community about nutrition, disease prevention and management, and other important health issues. HealthBeat, Bronx-Lebanonís widely acclaimed weekly television show, offers viewers the opportunity to have their questions answered by medical experts.

Bronx-Lebanonís Mobile Health Units are also bringing physicians and medical services directly to where they are needed. Its school-based health programs are promoting health education and prevention, as well as achieving positive outcomes for students.

In the financial area, Bronx-Lebanon has maintained a strong bottom line position, especially significant in the current economic environment. Bronx-Lebanon is also among the largest employers (with more than 4,000 employees) in the South and Central Bronx.

Ultimately, a hospital must be judged by its accomplishments and record of service. Throughout Bronx-Lebanonís history, there have been many changes and challenges. Yet, all of our efforts are based on a firm dedication to what matters most, the high quality comprehensive, accessible, and compassionate medical care that we have successfully providedóthat is Bronx-Lebanonís community service tradition.
