What hospitals in New York state have the most beds?

Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, located in Brooklyn, ranks number one on our list with a total bed count of 2,342 beds. In second place is Montefiore Hospital – Moses Campus located in the Bronx with 1,459 beds. And in third is Mount Sinai Medical Center with 1,087 beds.

Notably, six out of the top ten hospitals in NY are in one of New York City’s five boroughs. This makes sense, as hospitals in New York City serve many diverse, population-dense communities, and as such would require a higher bed count to meet patient needs more effectively. The remaining hospitals are found in other major areas of the state, such as Long Island, Albany, and Rochester.
