Established in 1736, this is the oldest municipal hospital in the United States, and one of the largest. Until the 1950s, when it had 2,700 beds, it was by far the biggest hospital in New York before being eclipsed by mergers of other large medical institutions. Among the âœfirstsâ in Bellevue’s history are the first cesarean section performed in the United States, the first use of hypodermic syringes, and the first hospital-owned ambulance service.
