The Mount Sinai Health System

Our Mission

The Mount Sinai Health System is internationally acclaimed for excellence in patient care, education and scientific research. Staffed by world-class physicians and nurses, our hospital is a destination for complex tertiary and quaternary care. In 2012, Mount Sinai was again named among America’s Best Hospitals, earning a spot on U.S. News & World Report “Honor Roll,” and ranking 14 out of 5,000 hospitals nationwide. In addition, we were nationally ranked in 11 out of 16 specialties and in the top ten in three of those: Geriatrics (#2), Gastroenterology (#7) and Cardiology & Heart Surgery (#10). We also made remarkable gains in several specialties, including: Ear, Nose & Throat, which rose from 18 to 11; Neurology & Neurosurgery, which improved from 22 to 15; and Urology, which advanced from 35 to 29. We improved our year-to-year rankings in Diabetes & Endocrinology, Gynecology, and Rehabilitation. We were high-performing in Psychiatry, Orthopaedics, and Pulmonology.
