Old photos of Columbia Presbyterian Hospital

Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, 1929

The Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, founded in 1868, was a widely acclaimed Babies & Children's Hospital, where the first pediatric heart transplant surgery was performed. It was also home to the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, one of the few NIH-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the metropolitan area. It is now the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, after a merger with The New York Hospital in 1998.

This photo was taken in 1929. Note the double-decker busses in the foreground and just to the left of them is a sign that reads "The Medical Center", apparently a name that was placed prior to the offical designation for this hospital.
