Weill Cornell Medical College has a new name

New York City-based Weill Cornell Medical College has reached the pinnacle of its strategic expansion and is rebranding as Weill Cornell Medicine.

Weill Cornell Medicine's long-term plan revolved around linking the New York City community to its network of physicians. In the past two years, Weill Cornell Medicine has grown its clinical network by adding 40 medical practices across the city. This growth has generated more than $1.14 billion in revenue so far this year, and contributed to Weill Cornell Medicine's title as the fastest growing medical school in the country, a title given by the Association of American Medical Colleges based on the school's increase in operating revenue in the past five years.

The rebrand as Weill Cornell Medicine is meant to encompass the school's three principles — to care, discover and teach — and emphasize its focus on the patient.

"Weill Cornell Medicine has a distinguished legacy of putting patients first, providing them with the finest care and offering the best possible outcomes to ensure that they live healthier lives," said Laurie Glimcher, MD, the dean of Weill Cornell Medicine. "Our name now fully encapsulates the strength and totality of our mission — keeping the patient at the center of everything we do."
