We are deeply dismayed by the recent false, misleading, and malicious attacks on Maimonides Medical Center.
COVID-19 has placed enormous stress on every hospital in the country, with well-publicized national shortages of staff adding to the existing challenges of delivering care during a pandemic.
We are proud of the world-class care that we deliver, with clinical outcomes that are recognized year after year by independent organizations as among the best in the U.S.
Maimonides has always gone above and beyond to engage with the diverse communities it serves and deliver care in a culturally sensitive manner.
Our safety net hospitals like Maimonides need more funding, not less, to address the historically inequitable underfunding of institutions that serve our most vulnerable communities.
We are grateful to the over 300,000 patients and families throughout Brooklyn and beyond who place their trust in Maimonides for their healthcare needs each year.
All of us who are part of Team Maimonides remain committed to and focused on providing the best possible care to every person who walks through our doors.
Read our open letter from our Board of Trustees.
Maimonides has long distinguished itself as committed to engaging and serving Brooklyn’s diverse communities with cultural sensitivity for all.

Through difficult times, our staff have been resilient, they’ve been dedicated, they’ve been going above and beyond, and making it work.
Please share these facts with friends and family who might inquire with you about the campaign, or with anyone else you think should know the truth.
