Mount Sinai Queens is recognized as a leader and innovator in the field of stroke care. As the only hospital in Queens designated a primary Stroke Center by the New York State Department of Health and the Joint Commission, our standard of neurologic health care is of the highest caliber.

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States.  Persons who exhibit the symptoms of a stroke should be evaluated immediately.  Having access to effective medical care saves lives and lowers the risk of potential disability, giving patients the best possible chance at recovery.

Access to efficient and effective medical care saves lives and lowers the risk of future disability, giving patients the best chance at making a full recovery.  Our award-winning stroke team is available 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week to evaluate and treat patients in the our emergency department. After admission to Mount Sinai Queens, patients are transferred to our intensive or intermediate care unit where we offer constant monitoring and personalized attention.
