Ensuring a Safe Mount Sinai
Although these challenging times have brought many changes, at the Mount Sinai Health System one thing has stayed the same: our total commitment to the safety of our patients and staff. While we understand that anyone may currently feel nervous about coming to a hospital or doctors office, we want to reassure our community and employees that we have put stringent protocols in place to protect every single person who comes through our doors. We are welcoming patients to receive the care you need from the doctors you trust. From emergencies to preventive screenings, your health is too important to put on hold, so our teams are here for you.
