The Center for the Performing Artist connects artists to Weill Cornell Medicine’s expert physicians, who practice in one of the top pulmonology programs in the country — in partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian, the #1 hospital in New York for 17 years running — according to U.S. News and World Report.
Asthma, chronic coughs and shortness of breath can be problematic for many types of performing artists, from singers, dancers and actors to sculptors and painters who can be exposed to different kinds of chemicals, sprays and toxins.
At Weill Cornell Medicine, we specialize in all aspects of pulmonary disease in a state-of-the-art facility and welcome patients with any type of breathing or lung disorder.
Artists who seek care through the Center for the Performing Artist receive personalized, compassionate attention as soon as they contact us. We work with each person to identify the specialist who can best address his or her needs, arrange a referral if necessary and even set up an appointment, test or procedure — all free of charge.
