The Boards of Trustees of The Mount Sinai Medical Center and Continuum Health Partners announced on Monday, September 30, the establishment of the Mount Sinai Health System. This new health system includes Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, seven major member hospital campuses in New York City, an extensive network of approximately 45 ambulatory care locations, 12 free-standing ambulatory surgery centers, and more than 40 clinical and academic relationships with local health care organizations—all throughout the greater metropolitan region.
Combining the best of both Continuum Health Partners and The Mount Sinai Medical Center will provide the new Mount Sinai Health System with increased efficiency, and provide patients with quality outcomes throughout their lives and at all levels of care. Our comprehensive health system will stand as a model of academic, clinical, and research excellence around the world.
We have been moving toward the establishment of the Mount Sinai Health System for months. In July, following a period of due diligence, the Boards of Trustees of Mount Sinai and Continuum signed a definitive agreement to combine both institutions, pending approval by government authorities, which we have just received.
You will see the effects of the integration immediately, as our leadership team includes individuals from Mount Sinai and Continuum, as well as new appointees. Our outstanding physicians, nurses, and staff from both institutions will work together, delivering extraordinary primary and specialty care to all patients.
With Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai serving as the single medical school for the Mount Sinai Health System, educational training will be integrated throughout the system, guaranteeing patients greater access to sophisticated technology, and some of the most brilliant minds in academic medicine. In turn, our faculty and students will have a vast canvas upon which to develop effective treatments for today’s pressing human diseases, their capabilities extending as far as their creativity will take them.
