"Mount Sinai Receives $2.5 Million For Children’s Cancer Unit" — Caroline Lewis
Mount Sinai Health System is naming a new pediatric cancer unit at Kravis Childrenʹs Hospital after the Jack Martin Fund after receiving a $2.5 million gift from the foundation, the health system said Monday. The fund, established in 1950 by the family and friends of a business executive who died of polio, has contributed more than $36 million to Mount Sinai over the years. The pediatric hematology‐oncology division the unit is a part of is also named for Jack Martin. Mount Sinai is holding a ribbon‐cutting today for the 5,300‐square‐foot Jack Martin Fund Inpatient Unit for Childrenʹs Cancer and Blood Disease, which will feature eight private beds, including two isolation rooms, as well as a family lounge and playroom. ʺThrough our alliance with Childrenʹs Hospital of Philadelphia and the co‐managed Childrenʹs Cancer Program, we have expanded our pool of nationally recognized experts and are increasing the scope of clinical services in order to provide the most advanced care for children battling cancer and blood disease,ʺ said Kenneth L. Davis, president and CEO of Mount Sinai Health System.
