The origins of NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst can be traced back to the mid 1800s and an institution known as City Hospital. Built to serve the poor, it was New York’s second oldest municipal hospital and once occupied seven acres at the southern end of Welfare Island. It was the first hospital in the nation to substantially reduce incidences puerperal or “childbed” fever among its maternity ward patients and played a major role in treating victims of the 1918 flu epidemic. Due to the rapid growth of New York’s population after World War II, City Hospital transferred to a new building in the Elmhurst section of Queens at 79-01 Broadway. The facility, now re-named NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst and erected at a cost of $25.2 million by the Department of Public Works, opened in 1957. In 1964, the hospital became affiliated with the Mount Sinai Hospital and School of Medicine, which, along with the introduction of modern equipment, resulted in an expansion of tertiary care capacity.
