Rockefeller University Hospital
On October 5, 2018, Rockefeller University Hospital released a statement regarding “inappropriate conduct” that Dr. Reginald Archibald engaged in during examinations of young patients, mostly boys. As is now clear, Dr. Archibald sexually abused many of his patients under the guise of medical care during his tenure at Rockefeller University Hospital from 1941-1946 and 1948-1982. Dr. Archibald died in 2007.

In early October, the Hospital sent letters to as many of Dr. Archibald’s former patients as it could locate, asking them to share information about Dr. Archibald. Many, many patients have now shared stories of abuse by Archibald with the Hospital.
