Laboratories Get Results

The Art Curator and Archives are pleased to announce the latest installment of "Spotlight on Montefiore", Laboratories Get Results, focusing on the Department of Pathology. The center display case features artwork that evokes a garden, but it is actually a mosaic of pathology slide images. The work was created by Jodi's summer intern, Livia Bartels. This exhibit was made possible by contributions from several people in the Department of Pathology and always reliable assistance from Engineering.

A Tradition Beyond Healing

A Tradition Beyond Healing

Founded as the MonteFiore Home for Chronic Invalids, only patients with incurable diseases and long-term illnesses were admitted for care. Often patients were here for months, if not years. The Ladies’ Auxiliary provided entertainment for all patients and education for the children with the NYC Board of Education supplying a teacher. The adult patients published their own paper, the Montefiore Echo. Radio shows were broadcast live from the hospital with stars like Ethel Merman. Harry M. Warner, a Montefiore Trustee, donated equipment for talking pictures and built a movie hall for the patients. Special meals and entertainment were provided during holidays to remove the sting of being away from home. This tradition continues today with a myriad of visitors and activities arranged year round for the patients at the CHAM.

Radiology

Statement by Elizabeth Knowles, artist:

Night Vision, x-ray film, staples 

By exploring the visual patterns of growth and form in nature, my work with X-ray film cut-outs investigates the relationship between intimate human patterns and organic forms in the larger natural world.  Dozens of conventional rectangular x-rays have been cut and transformed into plant-like shapes, revealing various skeletal structures inside an array of organic formations.

A Century Behind the Scenes

An introspective look at the staff of Montefiore for over 100 years.  This exhibition is a true showcase of the many duties, tasks, and jobs that go on everyday behind the scenes.  Without these individuals the hospital would cease to function and we want to thank you them for their years of service.  

Each and every one of our staff plays a vital role in providing an exceptional patient experience. Some of those roles are more visible, while others are behind the scenes.  

Our Facilities and Engineering Department is responsible for ensuring that all of our facilities are state-of-the-art, clean and safe, and welcoming to all patients and visitors. Our Nutrition Department is responsible for providing food for our patients, visitors and associates. And not just any food—our culinary offerings have received Gold Star recognition, the highest award possible, from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. 

Many others work in administrative roles. These roles—whether in Montefiore Information Technology, Finance or Community Relations, to name just a few—are critical to the operations of the health system. They are all responsible for advancing the health of our patients and communities.

There are countless other departments collaborating daily to elevate the Montefiore experience. It would not be possible to provide the highest levels of care to all those we serve without their expertise, passion and commitment. We thank them for all that they do every day to make Montefiore a truly remarkable place.
