A New York Methodist Affiliation Has Its Privileges

Below are some of the benefits that come with an NYM affiliation . . . 


New Patients

Physicians who affiliate with New York Methodist Hospital receive referrals for new patients through the Physician Referral Service, available on NYM.org and by telephone. NYM provides thousands of referrals each year.


One of the ways that NYM retains quality physicians is by continually acquiring and maintaining technologically advanced equipment in each department.

Nursing Care

NYM takes pride in staffing high quality, well-trained nurses who are capable of assisting our physicians. Nursing leadership collaborates with doctors to respond to patients' needs and solve problems as they arise.


As a teaching hospital, New York Methodist offers comprehensive, educational events and lectures given by nationally-renowned speakers. Most events are eligible for CME credits. In addition to CME events, we offer a full array of resident and fellowship opportunities. Our medical library is available for research purposes.


New York Methodist is a teaching hospital with residents available to assist physicians in patient care. However, physicians who prefer to work without help from residents are free to do so.

A Network of Physicians

Physicians who affiliate with New York Methodist Hospital enjoy access to a network of fellow experts and specialists in a culture of collaboration. For more information, call 718.780.5307.

Social Events

Hospital departments host periodic social events, holiday parties, and celebrations for resident graduations. Physicians are also welcome to attend Hospital fundraising events.


EMR Access from Anywhere

New York Methodist offers its physicians a sophisticated computerized order-entry system. Physicians can log in from anywhere and view patients' progress, including relevant lab results (in- and outpatient), radiological images and emergency department records.

Laboratory Services

NYM provides lab services for physician offices, nursing homes and individual patients. We offer on-demand courier service, perform lab testing every day (including holidays) and can provide same-day service for most routine tests.


NYM provides physicians with free parking which is a rare privilege in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn. Physician parking is conveniently located on Sixth Street near Eighth Avenue.

Lounge space

Located on the main floor of the Buckley Pavilion, the Physician's Lounge offers comfortable seating, a large screen television, telephones, computer terminals with Internet access, and free food and beverages.
