What Else Should I Know?
A teaching hospital founded in 1889 on Manhattan's Lower East Side, Mount Sinai Beth Israel is notable for its unique approach to combining medical excellence with clinical innovation. The hospital has recruited world-class specialists to expand services in heart disease, cancer, neurology, and orthopedics. It also continues its long tradition of excellence in medical specialties, including gastrointestinal disease, chemical dependency, psychiatric disorders, pain management and palliative care, and HIV/AIDS research and treatment. The hospital also has significantly advanced its commitment to community-based ambulatory care and expanding patient access to primary and specialty care.
About the Mount Sinai Health System
The Mount Sinai Health System is an integrated health care system providing exceptional medical care to our local and global communities. Encompassing the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and seven hospital campuses in the New York metropolitan area, as well as a large, regional ambulatory footprint, Mount Sinai is acclaimed internationally for its excellence in research, patient care, and education across a range of specialties. The Mount Sinai Health System was created from the combination of The Mount Sinai Medical Center and Continuum Health Partners, which both agreed unanimously to combine the two entities in July 2013.
The Health System is designed to increase efficiencies and economies of scale, improve quality and outcomes, and expand access to advanced primary, specialty, and ambulatory care services throughout a wide clinical network. The Health System includes 2,784 full- and part-time physicians, 3,783 voluntary physicians, and 12 freestanding ambulatory surgery centers. With more than 430 full- and part-time primary care physicians, clinical teams are able to manage large populations of patients in the lowest-cost, most effective settings. Mount Sinai also features a robust and continually expanding network of multispecialty services, including more than 45 ambulatory practices throughout the five boroughs of New York City, Westchester, and Long Island. It has more than 40 clinical and academic relationships with other local health care organizations, and Mount Sinai physicians can be found in more than 200 community locations throughout the New York metropolitan area. With an extraordinary array of resources for the provision of compassionate, state-of-the-art care, the Mount Sinai Health System is poised to identify and respond to the health-related needs of the diverse populations we serve.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Through the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, the Mount Sinai Health System benefits from synergies with a preeminent academic medical center. As one of the nation’s leading medical schools, the Icahn School of Medicine is at the forefront of medical and scientific training, biomedical research, and patient care. It is also one of several free-standing medical schools in the country that has developed independent, high-level graduate MD/PhD and MPH programs, as well as MS programs in biomedical sciences, genetic counseling, and clinical research. In all, the School will train more than 2,000 residents and fellows a year.
With more than 3,400 faculty in 32 departments and 15 research institutes, it will serve to integrate clinical and research missions across the System. In addition, new Clinical Institutes of Excellence will be the hubs of translational research and health care innovation across specialties. Over time, all Continuum Health Partners affiliations with other medical schools will be transferred to the Icahn School of Medicine, which will be the single medical school for the Health System.
The Icahn School of Medicine is one of the top medical school recipients for National Institutes of Health funding and other grant receipts per investigator. Translational research, from new diagnostics and therapeutics to innovative tools and delivery systems, is at the leading edge of this work. The seven hospital campuses within the Health System offer Mount Sinai’s medical, graduate, and master’s students a wide range of clinical and research experiences. MD candidates train alongside specialists in the growing number of Clinical Institutes of Excellence throughout Mount Sinai, and students pursuing an MS or PhD in clinical research have more opportunities for clinical trial management and analysis, as well as in-depth epidemiological projects. Building on Mount Sinai’s large and very diverse patient population, graduate students have expanded opportunities in genomic sciences, bioinformatics, and all basic science areas.
