Statement from Mount Sinai Health System Regarding Donations from Jeffrey Epstein

  • New York, NY
  • (August 23, 2019)

The Mount Sinai Health System has a deep and long-standing commitment to ensuring the health, safety, and dignity of rape, sexual assault, and domestic violence survivors. Jeffrey Epstein’s reprehensible behavior is completely antithetical to these values. As a result, we will be contributing a sum equal to the donations we received from Mr. Epstein and his foundation to a charity focused on preventing human trafficking and sexual exploitation, as well as providing financial support for the work of our Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Program, which provides immediate medical treatment and counseling, and public education around issues of sexual and domestic violence.
