Nursing in the Community
In order for the Mount Sinai Health System to best serve its communities, our nurses understand that their jobs extend far beyond the bedside. Whether they are bringing screening tests to neighborhood sites, participating in fundraisers, or hosting patient education events, our nursing teams are tirelessly mobilizing to deliver their skills, experience, and passion for preventive health directly to people who need it most.
Our Community Programs and Initiatives
Every year, Mount Sinai nurses volunteer their time and talents to engage in successful community health events, such as the following:
- Go Red for Women: This annual event provides services such as cholesterol checks, blood pressure checks, and more to hundreds of community members.
- American Heart Association Heart Walk: Each year, our nurses make a strong showing at the American Heart Association Heart Walk.
