Message from the Chair

With the introduction of new technologies, innovation, and healthcare policy, the landscape of healthcare is always changing. What is constant is our desire to improve the human condition. In the words of Hippocrates, "Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity."

Since 1910, we at the Rehabilitation Medicine have been dedicated in advancing human ability and solving barriers for those with disabilities.

From run-of-the-mill sprains/strains to severe injuries such as spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury our world class faculty provides the highest level of evidence-based care. Our full-time faculty, affiliated physicians, nurses, therapists, neuropsychologists, researchers, social workers, and staff provide the highest level of team based care to help patients achieve their goals.

What sets us apart from the rest, is the care that we provide and our level of commitment to quality and standards. We have been recognized for excellence through CARF-accreditation of 17 clinical programs. Our research program is second to none. We are the only hospital in New York to be granted model systems grants in both spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury. Moreover, we are one of only seven hospitals in the country to have this distinction.

Each and every member of the Rehabilitation Medicine is committed to putting our patients first. I invite you to learn more about us and experience the Mount Sinai difference.

Joseph Herrera, DO
System Chairman, Rehabilitation Medicine
