From 1964 to 2000, he was co-director of medical services at Bellevue and New York University hospitals, and he directed NYU's AIDS research center from 1989 to 1994. He retired in 2000.

Mrs. Hinckley fell ill in January while returning with her husband from the dedication of a Mormon temple in West Africa. Mr. Hinckley, 93, disclosed his wife's illness April 4 at the church's general conference, the first such meeting she had missed in 46 years.

The Hinckleys had been married 67 years. They have five children and 25 grandchildren.
