Biographical history

The Neustadter Home was created in Yonkers, NY by a provision in the 1905 will of Caroline Neustadter to serve as a convalescent center for patients after leaving the hospital. In 1936, an agreement was reached between The Mount Sinai Hospital and the Neustadter Home whereby Mount Sinai was given preferential use of the Home. Eventually the Board and members and medical staff were affiliated with Mount Sinai and the Hospital bought the facility outright. In 1973 the Neustadter Convalescent Center was sold by Mount Sinai.
