Mount Sinai Medical Center was established in 1949 by a group of philanthropists and concerned citizens with two goals in mind: To make healthcare services readily available to all people, regardless of race, color or creed, or their ability to pay, and to create a hospital where physicians would be allowed to practice medicine without fear of discrimination. More than 60 years later, we are proud to remain a not-for-profit hospital that provides vital health care services to all citizens. Through the years, we have steadily gained the expertise, resources and facilities necessary to serve an ever-expanding population of people in need.
Today, Mount Sinai is a 672-bed hospital with an expanding footprint of satellite centers throughout Miami-Dade County. With more than 700 physicians, 3,700 employees and 500 volunteers, we are the largest private independent not-for-profit teaching hospital in South Florida. Our growth is fueled by our steadfast dedication to the hospital’s mission:To provide high quality health care to our diverse community enhanced through teaching, research, charity care and financial responsibility. We continue to work hard to make a positive difference in our communities by offering vital medical services, providing uncompensated care to those in need through a multitude of outreach and support programs, and by hosting free community lectures and health screenings. In addition, as one of six teaching hospitals in the state, Mount Sinai also is making an impact at the regional and national levels through our active medical training and research programs. As Mount Sinai continues to grow, so does our legacy of caring.
