The Mount Sinai Health System’s largest celebration of the year took place on Thursday, May 8, as more than 1,300 guests, including leadership, staff, and supporters from all seven Mount Sinai hospitals gathered to dine, dance, and mingle at the 29th annual Crystal Party.
Marking the first full gathering of the Mount Sinai Health System, the event took place under the stars, in an expansive and festively decorated tent located in the Central Park Conservatory Garden. The benefit raised more than $3.7 million that will be used to support the Health System and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Crystal Party Chairs and hosts were Mount Sinai Trustees Marc S. Lipschultz and Steven Hochberg, and their wives Jennifer Lipschultz and Hillary Lane Hochberg, respectively.
Peter W. May, Chairman, Boards of Trustees, welcomed the guests. “Our new, integrated Health System doubles our former size and expands access to exceptional health care to millions of people throughout the Greater New York metropolitan area and beyond,” said Mr. May. “Together, we will help define the future of health care within a system that will set the example for others around the country.”
Kenneth L. Davis, MD, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Mount Sinai Health System, said: “We are now one of the largest and most sophisticated nonprofit health care systems in the country. With Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai at the heart of our Health System, our ability to always put medical and scientific innovation at the forefront of all that we do is unparalleled.”
