Brookdale, now one of the largest nonprofit voluntary teaching hospitals in Brooklyn, began as one small building rising amid the vacant fields and scattered farms where the towns of Brownsville, East New York and Canarsie come together.
Today, the hospital covers a 10-acre campus plus six Brookdale Family Care Centers, with buildings devoted to inpatient, ambulatory, long-term care, senior living and emergency medicine, and has the latest technology for service to our community. The original building has endured and so too has the spirit and philosophy of the men and women who struggled to build, equip and staff what they termed a haven of healing for all who needed it.
While it was "small change"--literally nickels, dimes and the occasional dollar--that the founders collected to build their hospital, there was nothing small about their vision. Members of the Jewish community wanted a hospital that served people of all races and creeds in a humanitarian manner.
