Sustain Mount Sinai

Mount Sinai has been a world leader in environmental medicine for more than 50 years. Acknowledging that human health is inextricably linked to the environment, Mount Sinai is committed to continuing to lead in the protection of our patients, employees, and communities through sustainable practices.

Hospitals operate all day, every day, and need sophisticated heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems to maintain operating rooms, laboratories, computers, medical equipment, as well as food and housekeeping services. It’s not a surprise then that hospitals have a significant environmental impact. At Mount Sinai we have a unique opportunity to improve the health and well-being of our patients, employees, visitors and community members through the efficient use of energy and natural resources and by reducing as much waste and pollution as possible.
