The Mount Sinai Health System was highly represented in New York magazine’s recently released list of “Best Doctors in New York,” which named 227 physicians from all seven hospitals and 36 doctors from Mount Sinai’s affiliated hospitals. The 263 physicians represented 21 percent of the total 1,251 doctors on New York magazine’s 2014 list, which appeared online and in the June 9-15, 2014 print edition. The list covers physicians from throughout the New York metropolitan region, including Connecticut and New Jersey.
Mount Sinai physicians came from 59 out of the 64 specialties included in the list, in areas such as cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology, endocrinology and diabetes, geriatrics, medical oncology, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, and urology.
“Our integrated health care system provides exceptional medical care to all New Yorkers and that is reflected in the extraordinary results on the ‘Best Doctors’ list,” says Kenneth L. Davis, MD, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Mount Sinai Health System. “This tally shows that some of the world’s best physicians are drawn to Mount Sinai for its innovative research and clinical care.”
In total, 142 physicians were on staff at The Mount Sinai Hospital and Mount Sinai Queens; with 39 doctors from Mount Sinai Beth Israel; 26 from Mount Sinai Roosevelt; 16 from the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai; 3 from Mount Sinai St. Luke’s; and 1 from Mount Sinai Beth Israel Brooklyn. Within medicine, 48 full-time faculty and voluntary physicians in 13 specialties from Mount Sinai made the list.
Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a New York City research and information firm, determines the rankings based on a regional peer-review survey that asks thousands of licensed physicians to nominate the physicians who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields.
The top 10 percent of the region’s physicians are listed in Castle Connolly’s annual guidebook, Top Doctors: New York Metro Area. For the past 17 years, New York magazine has published a shorter version of Castle Connolly’s list.
