The Program
The Asian Services Program at Mount Sinai Beth Israel aims to better understand the needs of Asian patients and provide easy access to high quality inpatient and outpatient care. The success of the program is largely due to the relationships developed with referring doctors as well as the strength of our specialty and sub-specialty services.

The Asian Services Program Offers:

  • Multicultural staff that speaks your language and understand your culture
  • Physician liaisons that coordinate in-hospital care
  • Chinese physicians to take good care of you
  • Referrals to specialists
  • Dedicated private ambulance services to transport patients to Beth Israel
  • Dedicated inpatient unit for Asian patients who are admitted to the hospital
  • Communication with your referring physician
  • Chinese menu

Our goal is to make you comfortable from the moment you enter Beth Israel through the use of multi-lingual signs, experienced interpreters, and free Asian-American newspapers. In addition, we continue to recruit multi-lingual employees and provide training to enhance employee understanding of the cultural and family dynamics of the Asian community. Patients will be served in a premier hospital that honors Asian culture, traditions and language in a tension-free environment.

Community Program
Asian Family Caregiver Program
Thanks to a generous grant from the Altman Foundation, the Department of Pain Medicine and Palliative Care (DPMPC) at Mount Sinai Beth Israel is launching an Asian Family Caregiver Program. The goal of this program is to offer new services, provide educational assistance and to research the community's needs and how to improve the well-being of Chinese-American family caregivers or patients with serious or advanced chronic illness.

Health Assessment for Asians with Cancer
This program aims to understand the health needs of Asian patients with cancer. Through a community health assessment, we are researching ways to provide pain relief.
