World Trade Center Health Program Clinical Center of Excellence at Mount Sinai
The World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program was established by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 and is administered by the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) within the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Zadroga Act provides free medical monitoring, treatment, mental health services, and benefits counseling for 9/11 responders and volunteers. Building on a long tradition of caring for injured and ill workers through the Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health, Mount Sinai is home to the largest WTC Health Program Clinical Center of Excellence (CCE) in the NY/NJ region.
Recent studies, including those authored by Mount Sinai researchers, have documented the persistence of physical and mental health problems experienced by 9/11 responders and volunteers. Some of the problems experienced by responders are: upper and lower respiratory and gastrointestinal problems, musculoskeletal disorders, mental health conditions, as well as various types of cancer. These studies have reinforced the fact that responders require continuous medical care and long-term follow up.
