Victor Keyloun

Dr. Victor Keyloun 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 other doctors would not. His last few years in practice overlapped with the first few 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 that he observed over time, eventually leading to the hospital’s demise in 2010.
