A Family's Legacy
Located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Gracie Square Hospital has offered compassionate, high-quality, evidence-based behavioral health care for over 60 years. Established by Richard, Larry, and Cynthia Zirinsky in 1958, Gracie Square was built on the core concept of focusing on the individual needs of each patient. We are proud to carry on the vision and legacy of the Founding Family, and we thank the Zirinsky Family for their continued support, generosity, and involvement.
Holistic & Patient-Centered Care
Today Gracie Square Hospital is the only freestanding inpatient mental healthcare institution in Manhattan, and continues to be a leader in behavioral health. We take a holistic approach to treat each individual's mental health, employing immersive programming specially tailored to focus on the mind, body, and soul of each patient. Throughout treatment, our team collaborates with patients, their loved ones, and the networks that surround them — an approach we take to facilitate the recovery and return of our patients to their families and communities.
