Established in 1891 in a rented four-bedroom home in Jamaica, Queens, Jamaica Hospital Medical Center’s growth has been remarkable. Through commitment to our mission and collaboration with community residents, businesses and other groups we have strengthened and expanded the hospital’s services.
Founded in 1884 by a group of community minded women who set up a room with one bed in a rented house, Flushing Hospital Medical Center (FHMC) today is a 293-bed voluntary, not-for-profit teaching hospital. The medical center, located in the city's most culturally diverse borough, has served the health care needs of the community for more than a century, and has, over the years, become a solid and vital part of the infrastructure of the city itself.
Trump Pavilion for Nursing and Rehabilitation was built in 1975 and named after Mary Trump, mother of businessman/investor Donald Trump. Originally a 204-bed facility, Trump Pavilion has built its reputation, from the very beginning, as one of the finest nursing and rehabilitation centers in Queens.
The inpatient coma recovery and Traumatic Brain Injury unit (TBI) is a 20- bed facility. The unit opened in 1994 as one of the first facilities for brain injury in NYC and was named after James Brady and his wife Sarah. Mr. Brady, former White House Press Secretary for Ronald Reagan, suffered a severe brain injury in 1981 after receiving a gunshot wound to the head. He continued his job at the White House and exemplifies the kind of recovery The Brady Institute hopes to inspire.
