February 17, 2017: Statement from Jeremy Boal, President of Mount Sinai Downtown

The Mount Sinai Downtown network is proud to provide the finest quality obstetrics and gynecological care, including at Mount Sinai-Union Square (formerly the Phillips Ambulatory Care Center). All of these top quality services will continue as we undergo our Downtown transformation, but as previously announced, deliveries at Mount Sinai Beth Israel (MSBI), including neonatal care, will be ending in late May.  Currently, MSBI delivers an average of only six babies daily.

When it comes time to deliver, expectant mothers will have delivery suites and operating rooms available at Mount Sinai West (MSW) and The Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH). Both hospitals are renowned for their labor and delivery services, and continue to invest in infrastructure to ensure that new and expecting mothers receive the best care possible.  In addition, both MSH and MSW are equipped with a full-service, Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for infants born prematurely or with complications.

Expectant mothers who live in Brooklyn will also have the opportunity to take advantage of care closer to home. Mount Sinai is working to expand its strategic relationship with The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC), and Mount Sinai and its physicians are planning to work jointly in the provision of clinical care and quality oversight of the obstetrics program at TBHC. TBHC is also equipped with a full-service, Level III NICU.
