About the Executive Health Program at Mount Sinai
At The Mount Sinai Medical Center, our distinguished physicians understand that time is a precious commodity for today’s professionals and executives. However, even more valuable is your greatest asset – your health, and our Executive Health Program for Diagnostic and Preventive Medicine is a comprehensive one-day assessment, designed to help you take control of it with preventive action.
Within one convenient day, each participant of the Executive Health Program undergoes a comprehensive set of lab tests and non-invasive exams. Before you leave, the results, an in-depth consultation, and strategic recommendations are given to you to address any current or potential health issues. After the session, a confidential, comprehensive report is sent to you and your personal physician. Isn’t your health worth one day of your time?
Why Choose Mount Sinai?
US News & World Report ranked Mount Sinai Medical Center on the "Honor Roll" of Top 15 hospitals for 2012-2013 and our Cardiology & Heart Surgery services as 10th in the country. Our longstanding tradition of excellence in clinical care, research, and genomics has drawn patients from around the globe to this preventative medicine Program. Led by Director Kevin G. Dunsky, the Executive Health Program is a one-stop, internationally recognized health care destination. Participants in our Program choose Mount Sinai because they have access to:
- Some of the top, senior physicians worldwide
- Our signature Ambassador Service
- Cutting-edge imaging technology (i.e. stress echocardiogram)
- Vast research and genomics resources
- Rapid turnaround of results (within the day)

While many other facilities offer an Executive Health Program, none can provide the access you will have to our award-winning physicians or the wealth of research resources Mount Sinai possesses. Mount Sinai Heart Founding Director Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, is the only cardiologist to have received all four major research awards from the world’s four major cardiovascular organizations. He made headlines when he managed a patient who underwent a combined heart and lung transplant in 2006 – an achievement heralded by New York Magazine as one of the “11 medical marvels.” Director of Clinical Cardiology Services at the Cardiovascular Institute, Jonathan L. Halperin, MD, is a recipient of numerous distinguished awards whose reputation for setting the standards for high quality patient care has led to his writing of guidelines for managing patients with various cardiovascular disorders for the American Heart Association. These, among others, are the physicians who assess our Executive Health Program participants’ health.
Additionally, The Mount Sinai Hospital serves as a University Hospital for Icahn School of Medicine, which is ranked 18th of the126 medical schools in the nation, according to US News & World Report. Additionally, Mount Sinai ranks 17th by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for research funding and third by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) for research funding per faculty. This past fall, Icahn School of Medicine was awarded $16.5 million from the NIH and the National Heart and Lung Institute (NHLBI) through the Program of Excellence in Nanotechnology (PEN) – one of only four issued nationwide to develop a dedicated multidisciplinary research center to nanotechnology research to improve diagnostic tools and treatments for heart, lung and blood diseases. Mount Sinai’s clinical care is backed by unparalleled rich resources in research and genomics, which offer countless insights into the genesis and proper treatment of various diseases and disorders.
