Mount Sinai Expands and Looks Toward the Future of Healthcare
Earlier this month, the Mount Sinai Health System welcomed the newest addition to their hospital network with the opening of the Mount Sinai – National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute. The respiratory specialty practice opened on the second floor of Mount Sinai-Union Square, the 275,000-square foot ambulatory and urgent care center located at 10 Union Square East. The partnership is between Mount Sinai Health Systems and National Jewish Health, the only national institution dedicated to research and treatment of respiratory diseases. They are currently ranked #1 in pulmonology by the U.S. News & World Report for Best Hospitals. The new Mount Sinai – National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute brings specialty care, leading research, and innovative treatments for asthma, chronic pulmonary disease, and lung disease to New Yorkers.
The opening is part of a larger transformation planned for Mount Sinai Health Systems to fully meet the evolving needs of patients. Over the past year, the Mount Sinai-Union Square facility completed a full renovation with redesigned exam rooms, a new lobby, six operating rooms, an emergency department, and special care suites. With a main campus and satellite locations located throughout Union Square, Mount Sinai Health Systems is transforming their downtown locations into Mount Sinai Downtown. Mount Sinai Downtown will be a river-to-river network providing leading healthcare in lower Manhattan below 34th Street.
As part of this long-term transformation, Mount Sinai Health Systems will open a new Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospital at 14th Street and Second Avenue next to Mount Sinai’s New York Eye and Ear Infirmary at 310 East 14th Street. The new hospital will feature state-of-the-art operating and procedure rooms, laboratory services, high-tech RMI equipment, and a full emergency department.
The first phase of demolition and construction is currently underway. Mount Sinai anticipates completion of the new hospital around 2022.
