NYC Health + Hospitals/Gouverneur opened its doors as a community hospital in 1885 in an abandoned police station on the Lower East Side. It served as an emergency hospital and ambulance station for the waterfront community with one visiting physician and surgeon, one consulting surgeon, and a three-member house staff. Through the years, Gouverneur was on the forefront providing needed care.
