Legal issues

In 2001, the former president of the NY Methodist Medical Board and one of the hospital's surgeons, Mohammad Oloumi, had his medical license suspended by the NY State Department of Health due to professional negligence.

In 2011, a drug ring composed of NY Methodist residents was broken up by the DEA.

In September 2013, NYM agreed to implement a compliance program to settle civil claims under the Controlled Substances Act. This related to NYM medical residents' prescriptions for the drug Adderall without a legitimate medical purpose. NYM also paid a civil penalty of $70,000.

In November 2013, a $25 million judgment was levied against NY Methodist Hospital in the case of a young child who was not properly treated for a severe case of jaundice.

Name change

In January 2017, NYM became part of the NewYork-Presbyterian Regional Hospital network and the name was changed the NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.
