Victor Keyloun

Dr. Victor Keyloun (b. February 20, 1935) worked at St. Vincent’s Hospital from 1963 to 1983. He was a neighborhood doctor, notably serving extended Italian families as well as the Village’s large gay population, at a time when many doctors would not. His last years in practice overlapped with the first years of the tragic AIDS epidemic. This interview includes Dr. Keyloun’s account of the changes in both general medical practice and the particular management of St. Vincent’s, eventually leading to the hospital’s demise in 2010.
