We need your help during this COVID-19 crisis. One Brooklyn Health System operates three safety net hospitals, Interfaith Medical Center, Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, and The Brookdale Hospital Medical Center, which serves a richly diverse community with many residents who are insured through Medicaid and Medicare. Many of our patients are seniors and people with pre-existing health conditions that put them at significant risk of becoming very ill if they become COVID-19 positive. The staff at Brookdale, Interfaith and Kingsbrook has, and will continue to, move mountains to serve our community.
During this unimaginable public health crisis, we need your support. Our staff needs personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies. To care for very sick patients, we need life-saving ventilators and we must increase our staff of nurses, physicians and other care givers to treat the surge of patients coming to our three hospitals for care.

One Brooklyn Health System, Inc. (OBHS) is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt corporation licensed under Article 28 of the Public Health Law. OBHS is the NYS Department of Health approved co-operator of Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, Interfaith Medical Center and Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center.
OBHS seeks to preserve and enhance access to healthcare services in Brooklyn by coalescing the separate hospitals and their governed affiliates into a sustainable, quality integrated health system. In April 2016, the NYS Department of Health commissioned a feasibility study (The Brooklyn Study: Reshaping the Future of Healthcare) which proposed a roadmap or “Plan” to transform the healthcare delivery system in central and northeastern Brooklyn. The Transformation Plan proposed in the study has been adopted by OBHS and is availabe at https://www.northwell.edu/about/our-organization/northwell-ventures/brooklyn-study
In January 2018, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that OBHS was awarded $664 million in capital funding from the NYS Department of Health’s Health Care Facilities Transformation Program: Kings County project. The award represents a significant part of the Governor’s groundbreaking $1.4 billion “Vital Brooklyn” initiative that will address chronic social, economic and health disparities – and transform Central Brooklyn. The funding provides OBHS with approximately:
• $210 million to develop a 32-site ambulatory care network,
• $384 million for critical clinical and facility infrastructure improvements; and
• $70 million to create an enterprise wide Health Information Technology Platform.
The OBHS mission, as adopted by its independent and unified Board of Trustees, is to provide greater access to high quality medical care and keep its communities healthy through an integrated care system that respects the diversity of our communities and addresses both the health needs and the unique factors that shape them.
The Brookdale Hospital Medical Center is located at the Corner of Linden Boulevard and Rockaway Parkway and serves all of Central and Eastern Brooklyn. Brookdale is a Level I Trauma Center and a designated Stroke Center and offers more than 50 specialties.
Interfaith Medical Center is a full service acute care hospital located at 1545 Atlantic Avenue between Troy and Albany Avenues.
