  • (January 21, 2020)

The Mount Sinai Health System has once again been ranked among America’s “Best Employers for Diversity” by Forbes and research firm Statista.

Mount Sinai was ranked No. 3 in the “Healthcare & Social” category and No. 19 overall among 500 companies across more than 20 industries. The Health System is New York City’s largest academic medical system, including eight hospitals, a leading medical school, and a vast network of ambulatory practices.

“This ranking reflects our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, a representation of our compassionate and caring staff that continues to mirror the diverse communities we serve,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System. “We are honored to be part of this list of forward-thinking and inclusive groups who value our differences to strengthen our organizations.”

“Groundbreaking initiatives at our medical school—from the creation of the first-ever Dean for Gender Equity to the launch of the Diversity Innovation Hub to address underrepresented groups in medicine and innovation—demonstrate our unparalleled dedication to inclusion,” said Dennis S. Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and President for Academic Affairs of the Mount Sinai Health System. “This recognition underscores Mount Sinai’s continued efforts to promote gender equity and diversity in medicine.”

Statista surveyed more than 60,000 employees working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees apiece in the United States. Participants rated their organization on topics including age, gender, ethnicity, and disability. Underrepresented groups, including women and ethnic minorities, also provided their views on other employers within their industry. Diversity across leadership including top executives and boards, and access to public information, such as a designated chief diversity and inclusion officer, contributed to a company’s overall score.
