From the Dean & CEO
Spring is a time when things bloom and blossom: nature, people, even institutions. I'm happy to say that NYU Langone Medical Center is flourishing as never before. Our Department of Neurosurgery—the finest in New York City and one of the best in the world—recently recruited several world-class surgeons. As someone who trained in neurosurgery before shifting my career path to radiology, I'm particularly proud that, as Department Chair Dr. John Golfinos says, "We're making an extraordinary department even more extraordinary." Our Department of Surgery is also growing by leaps and bounds, adding 39 surgeons over the past five years, thanks to the tireless efforts of Department Chair Dr. Leon Pachter.
Our expansion is geographical as well. As part of a strategic plan to extend the Medical Center's reach to neighborhoods near and far, we have opened ambulatory care centers in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, and the Financial and Theater Districts of Manhattan over the past three years. We also opened the Rita J. and Stanley H. Kaplan Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Transplant Center at Tisch Hospital, which will offer transplants to those who can benefit from compatible donors, another first for NYU Langone.
It's been a rough winter, but a glorious season is upon us.
