Mount Sinai Expands Upper Manhattan Investment with Nearly $80M Harlem Health Center on 124th Street
New State-of-the-Art Facility to Bring Primary + Specialty Care, Specialized Clinics and Integrative Medicine Closer to the Community New Center Part of Ambitious Upper Manhattan Investment, Follows Opening of the Phillips School of Nursing at Mount Sinai Beth Israel
Today, the Mount Sinai Health System – New York City’s largest academic medical system – announced the creation of a new, nearly $80 million, state-of-the-art outpatient health center at 124th Street in Harlem. The Mount Sinai-Harlem Health Center combines and expands services for two Harlem hospitals, Mount Sinai Morningside and The Mount Sinai Hospital, to offer the highest-quality primary care, medical and surgical specialty care. The new Center is the latest Mount Sinai investment in Harlem and is expected to be completed and open in the fall of 2022.
“Mount Sinai has a long and proud history of serving the Upper Manhattan community, and our new Mount Sinai-Harlem Health Center is the latest in our ongoing commitment to deliver the world-class care, resources, and services to the community where they live and work,” said Kelly Cassano, D.O., Chief Executive Officer, Mount Sinai Doctors Faculty Practice; Dean for Clinical Affairs, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Senior Vice President for Ambulatory Operations, Mount Sinai Health System. “The Center expands our ambulatory footprint and follows the recent opening of our Phillips School of Nursing and the New York Proton Center both based in Harlem. This expansion is part of our broader mission to bring services, care, and investments into the local communities. By bringing these services closer to where people live and work, as we have with other outpatient practices across our system, we hope to provide greater access to care and deliberate investment to all the communities we serve.”
The new Mount Sinai-Harlem Health Center will offer comprehensive outpatient health care for Upper Manhattan. The Center will provide primary care, medical and surgical specialty care such as cardiology and orthopedics, outpatient mental health care, comprehensive HIV/AIDS care, and dentistry. In addition, it will include on-site radiology, laboratory and pharmacy services. The Mount Sinai-Harlem Health Center will become the cornerstone of Mount Sinai’s outpatient services for the Upper Manhattan communities of Harlem and Washington Heights/Inwood.
Mount Sinai’s newest medical facility comes on the heels of the recently unveiled Phillips School of Nursing at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, located at 126th Street and Lexington Avenue, and the New York Proton Center, opened in partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Montefiore Health System at 126th Street and 3rd Avenue in 2019. The new nursing school offers two nursing programs: The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (ABSN) and the RN-BSN program (RN-BSN) to support and train nurses with the flexibility they need to succeed. Mount Sinai Doctors also operates a long-established and well-regarded primary care practice located on 147th Street and Frederick Douglas Boulevard.
The Mount Sinai-Harlem Health Center is part of Mount Sinai’s long-standing commitment to best serve upper Manhattan communities and is the culmination of an ongoing open dialogue with all stakeholders in the community, including the Greater Harlem Coalition, elected officials, local leaders, and providers. Mount Sinai remains committed to bringing inclusive, equitable, and high-quality medical care and cutting-edge technology into the communities we serve in New York and beyond.
