John W. Estabrook headed Methodist Hospital for nearly four decades. He also created and led Methodist Health System until his retirement as President Emeritus in 1992.

He has said that he sees his number one accomplishment as the successful construction of Methodist Hospital at 84th Street at a reasonable cost.

His remarkable career and success at Methodist began with his military service in World War II.
