COVID-19 Advisory and Consulting Services

The Mount Sinai Health System has played a leading role in the response to the COVID-19 crisis in New York and the United States. Since the virus was discovered, we have been fully engaged in preparation, clinical response, and research efforts within our own institution; we have also assisted other hospitals, health care providers, corporations, and governments with their protocols. During the peak of the COVID-19 crisis in New York, we consistently had more than 2,000 patients in our hospitals and more than 450 cases in our ICUs at any given time. To date Mount Sinai has discharged more than 5,100 COVID-19 patients from our hospitals.

For these reasons, Mount Sinai is strongly positioned to provide customized advisory and consulting services for other organizations as they respond to the COVID-19 crisis.
