New York Hospital, 1931

New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, formerly known as New York Hospital was established in 1898. The central building was completed around 1931. It followed the art deco architecture of its time and took the role of a leader in science and medical practice.

Graduates from the Hospital include Wilson Greatbatch (B.E.E. ‘50), inventor of the cardiac pacemaker, Henry Heimlich (M.D. ‘43) who developed the Heimlich maneuver, and Robert W. Holley (Ph.D. ‘47), co-winner of the 1968 Nobel Prize in physiology–medicine.

Joe took this picture in May, 1931, as the building was near completion. Joe came back in 1999 to rephotograph it from the same location as he stood sixty-eight years earlier (see Time Zone  for a before and after view of Weill Cornell Medical College).
