A Look Back: Einstein and Montefiore

The College of Medicine’s affiliation with Montefiore Hospital Medicine began 60 years ago, on Sept. 25, 1963, when officials of the two institutions met to sign the formal agreement. Standing, from left: Marcus D. Kogel, M.D., dean of the College of Medicine, and Martin Cherkasky, M.D., director of Montefiore Hospital. Seated, from left: Jacob W. Schwab, president of Montefiore Hospital, and Samuel Belkin, Ph.D., president of Yeshiva University.

In 1969, Montefiore took over the operation of Einstein’s Jack D. Weiler Hospital, which today is part of Montefiore Health System’s Einstein campus. Montefiore became Einstein’s University Hospital and academic medical center in 2009, when the two institutions signed a new agreement reflecting their expanding partnership. Then, in 2015, a historic agreement was signed, which transferred financial and operational responsibility for the College of Medicine to Montefiore.
