Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Centers (SVCMC) is one of the New York metropolitan area’s most comprehensive health care systems, serving nearly 600,000 people annually. SVCMC was established in 2000 as a result of the merger of Catholic Medical Centers of Brooklyn and Queens, Saint Vincent Hospital and Medical Center of New York and Sisters of Charity Healthcare on Staten Island.

The system also operates four skilled nursing facilities, a system-wide home care agency, a hospice and over 60 ambulatory care sites which provide a broad array of medical, psychiatric and substance abuse services. In 2004, SVCMC recorded more than 92,000 inpatient discharges, 1,100,000 outpatient visits, and 640,000 home care visits. Its emergency rooms, which include three Level I Trauma centers, received 255,000 visits in that same year.
