Mount Sinai School Health Program

The Mount Sinai School Health Program helps the children and youth of East Harlem to get the care they need to prevent and treat illness. The Mount Sinai Hospital is conveniently located on the border of the East Harlem community. As health care providers, we know how hard it can be for busy parents to keep up with all of their children’s health care needs. We also know that healthier kids are better learners. We strive to make it easier for parents by bringing first-class health care services to the schools, where kids spend most of their day. 

Since 1983, the Mount Sinai School Health Program has partnered with the East Harlem public schools to deliver comprehensive primary care, mental health care, and preventative services to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. We bring together a caring team of licensed doctors, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, social workers, health educators, medical assistants, and health coordinators.
