Post Acute COVID-19 Program
In the wake of COVID-19, the medical community has begun to acknowledge a subgroup of patients presenting with "long hauler" or persistent symptoms after an initial COVID-19 infection. The team at Mount Sinai Health System first identified this novel symptom presentation, and named it Post Acute COVID-19 Syndrome or "PACS". To address the needs of individuals experiencing PACS, the Department of Rehabilitation and Human Performance, along with Mount Sinai’s Center for Post-COVID Care, has developed a novel rehabilitation program. We are one of very few Centers in the country providing these services to patients of all ages. To learn more about this program, please email us at PRcovid@mountsinai.org.
