When COVID-19 started to spread across the country, Montefiore Health System in the Bronx, New York, was at the epicenter, with more than 4,000 simultaneously hospitalized patients at one point.

On this episode of CANCER BUZZ, we’ll delve into the dramatic changes in care delivery this medical center underwent during the pandemic, lessons learned along the way that will help pave their way forward, and how the spirit of collaboration and innovation that emerged in 2020 will remain long after the pandemic.
