About Montefiore Einstein
“It is Montefiore Einstein’s job as one of New York City’s largest academic health systems to illuminate a path for medical innovation and patient care. Healthcare is a changing game—and we are the game changers.” –Steven M. Safyer, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer, Montefiore Einstein
Montefiore Health System was founded in 1884 by Jewish philanthropists as a care facility for patients with chronic illnesses, and quickly expanded into a world-class hospital based in the Bronx. Years later, Albert Einstein agreed to lend his named to a future medical school that would accept “students of all creeds and races,” and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine welcomed its first class, 53 men and 3 women, on September 12, 1955. To provide clinical education for medical students and residents, Montefiore and Einstein entered an initial affiliation agreement in 1963, leading to a partnership marked by several medical “firsts” – the world’s first transvenous cardiac pacemaker, the country’s first pediatric kidney transplant program, and the state’s first specialized endocrine and neuroendocrine tumor program.
Building on the decades-long synergy among educational, research, and clinical enterprises, Montefiore and Einstein’s affiliation developed into a full academic partnership when Montefiore assumed fiduciary oversight, operations, and governance of the College of Medicine from Yeshiva University in September 2015. Today, Montefiore Einstein is one of New York’s premier academic health systems and is a recognized leader in providing exceptional quality and personalized, accountable care to approximately three million people across the Bronx, Westchester, and the Hudson Valley. The Montefiore Einstein system is comprised of 11 hospitals, including the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, and close to 200 outpatient care sites. The advanced clinical and translational research at the College of Medicine directly informs patient care and improves outcomes. From the Montefiore Einstein Centers of Excellence in cancer, cardiology and vascular care, pediatrics, and transplantation to a preeminent school-based health program, Montefiore Einstein is a fully integrated healthcare delivery system providing coordinated, comprehensive care to patients and their families.
Philanthropy at Montefiore Einstein
Montefiore Einstein has created incredible synergy around new bench-to-bedside discoveries that draw on the strengths of both institutions – premier educational opportunities, cutting-edge research, and science-driven clinical services. While there’s great promise in the combined force of Montefiore Einstein, the integration of two complex institutions requires thoughtful planning and tremendous leadership, particularly as it relates to philanthropy. To capitalize on the opportunity that the integrated system presents, the Montefiore and Einstein development teams were integrated into one office in August 2016.
Since coming together, the Montefiore Einstein Office of Development, led by Rachelle Sanders, Vice President and Chief Development Officer, has doubled the number of full-time frontline fundraisers on the ground, re-engaged donors who have lapsed during the transition from Yeshiva University, and elevated the system-wide conversation about philanthropy through a strategic planning for development process led by executive, trustee, and campus leaders. With a strategic plan for development in hand, Montefiore Einstein has the roadmap and leadership investment to guide and focus fundraising activity over the next several years. By demonstrating what it means to give back and inspiring others to do the same, Montefiore Einstein will aspire to reach its overarching vision of becoming a leading philanthropic institution that attracts transformational support locally and beyond the New York City region.
