Serving Teens in the Community and Beyond
The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center is based in New York City’s East Harlem community and supports a diverse population of at-risk children, adolescents, and young adults (ages 10 through 22). In a typical year, we serve more than 10,000 patients, who log more than 50,000 visits. In addition to the kids from the neighboring community, others from throughout the five boroughs travel for up to five hours, round trip, to benefit from the MSAHC's welcoming environment, trust-inspiring staff, and free services.
