Envisioning the Future: The 200-Year History of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary (1820-2020)

New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE), a national leader in ophthalmological and otolaryngological research, education and patient care, is celebrating its 200th Year Anniversary in 2020. The hospital traces its origins to two idealistic physicians, Edward Delafield, MD, and John Kearny Rodgers, MD, who established the Infirmary to lead in the noble mission to serve the poor and educate the next generation of healers.

To commemorate the 200th Anniversary, the hospital will publish Envisioning the Future: The 200-Year History of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary (1820-2020). This comprehensive history, featuring full-color photographs, details the founding of the first specialty hospital in America, its formative years and its growth to prominence. Publishing a detailed account of NYEE’s impressive 200-year history was a passion of Richard Rosen, MD, Deputy Chair for Clinical Affairs in the Department of Ophthalmology at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and The Belinda Bingham Pierce & Gerald G. Pierce, MD, Distinguished Chair of Ophthalmology at NYEE and the late Joseph B. Walsh, MD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology for both NYEE and New York Medical College.

The book will come out in the Spring of 2020. Information on how to purchase the book will be available at a later date.
