NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln has provided health care services to the community for over 177 years. Initially known as “The Home for the Colored Aged,” the facility first began providing services in 1839 in a building located on 51st Street and the Hudson River. Founded by the “Society for the Relief of Worthy Aged Indigent Colored Persons,” the facility’s original mission was to serve as a Home for aged black people, many of whom had been slaves prior to the abolition of slavery in New York City. In 1843, in order to accommodate an increasing population, the “Home” moved to 40th Street and Park Avenue.
