Giving is our legacy, mission, and vision for the future

Bikur Cholim of Manhattan was founded more than 60 years ago to assist hospital patients and their family members. Today, its story can best be told by the many recipients of our assistance who come from around the world. It is a story of kindness, of  generosity, of selflessness — offering warmth and care during challenging times.

We strive to recognize needs as they arise and to address those needs with care and dignity.

BCM distributes, with discretion and due diligence, hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to cover medical consultations and procedures, therapies and aides.

Bikur Cholim of Manhattan manages a robust cohort of volunteers who make themselves available at any time to cook food, escort and visit patients, support families of patients from abroad and offer love and hope.

BCM leases five beautifully appointed apartments for the benefit of the families of hospitalized patients. The four kosher and fully stocked apartments near Mt. Sinai East, and the one equally equipped apartment near Mt. Sinai West are used almost continuously, week to week, servicing guests from the US, Israel, South America and Europe.
