Robert Hadden patients reach deal with New York-Presbyterian, Columbia

Hadden pleaded guilty to state sex-crime charges in 2016. The deal required him to surrender his medical license but allowed him to avoid prison time.

He is still awaiting trial in federal court on eight criminal counts of bringing women across state lines for the purpose of sexual abuse.

“We deeply regret the pain that Robert Hadden’s patients suffered and hope that these resolutions will provide some measure of support for the women he hurt,” Columbia University Irving Medical Center said in a statement. “All those who came forward should be commended.”

Hadden is accused of sexually abusing patients, including minors, over the course of roughly two decades, taking advantage of his position to make them believe his actions were appropriate and medically necessary.

He worked at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia until 2012.
