The Mount Sinai Hospital is dedicated to the health and well-being of its diverse communities. From free health screenings and counseling to exercise classes and home-based care, we offer a wealth of services and programs for people of all ages. We work closely with governing bodies, schools, religious organizations, and social service agencies to meet our community’s needs. Our goal is to help you be your healthiest.
We maintain solid partnerships with community-based health organizations. These partnerships continue to provide us with countless opportunities to expand and increase your access to quality care and wellness education.
Our extensive work with community groups and city agencies to build programs such as Prescriptions for Good Health and Growing Up Healthy in East Harlem, a community-based study exploring environmental factors affecting the health of children, enables us to improve treatment approaches and allows us to help you to make better-informed decisions about your health.
