Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital (MEETH)
Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital (MEETH) opened its doors to patients on October 15, 1869 at its original location, 223 East 34th Street. At the time, much of the city did not have access to many vital services and the lack of basic healthcare drastically affected everyday life. Faced with this reality, the New York state legislature issued a charter to found a voluntary, non-profit hospital whose mission was to “…alleviate the sufferings of the poor, the prevention of pauperism, and the cultivation and diffusion of sound knowledge of all that relates to the diseases of the eye and ear.” Since its founding, MEETH has built upon its proud tradition of providing patient-centered care and has grown to become the world-renowned facility that it is today.
