Hospital St. Lukes-Roosevelt vs Lenox Hill Hospital

Which is better St. Luke's Roosevelt or Lenox Hill Hospital? Can't figure out which one to rank higher. Not sure if Lenox has the same patient diversity as St. Luke's, but St. Luke's seems to be pretty well known for getting fellowships? Please HELP!

There's no doubt that SLR is more reputed than Lenox. Bigger program, great pathology, supportive program leadership with Dr. Fried well-known across the country. Lenox is a plush hospital in one of the most awesome locations in NYC; don't expect it to be as autonomous for residents as SLR is. As you commented, SLR has impressive fellowship placements. If you are interested in Heme/Onc, SLR has access to MSKCC (!!) which is a tremendous opportunity to work with the best in the field.

You are abs right!! I also felt the same on my SLR interview day. Big reason, probably is, the drip system, which many residents despise! But, SLR increased their categorical positions to 45 one year back. So when we join in, it should be easier than it is for current residents.
