The Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Center offers one of the most integrated cancer research programs in the state. Our program gives patients the opportunity to participate in innovative clinical trials that offer new cancer treatment options before they become available to the general public. Our program is currently engaged in more than 65 active clinical trials, placing Mount Sinai at the forefront among the nation’s cancer research institutions. Many of our protocols have resulted in cutting-edge cancer treatments.
Mount Sinai is committed to applying major technological advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. We are among a select few hospitals in the nation to acquire the SPECT-CT, a state-of-the-art imaging system for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, cardiac and orthopaedic conditions. SPECT-CT uses advanced molecular technology to produce highly detailed 3-D anatomic images. This system gives physicians the best available visual information to precisely plan therapy, radiation or surgical procedures. SPECT-CT also aids in tumor staging and in determining efficacy of treatment.
Mount Sinai was the first Florida hospital with the Evident™ ablation system, which destroys tumors in the kidneys, liver, lungs and other soft tissues using microwave energy.

This hospital is so unique in many ways (good ways) I love how easy is to find parking for patients and the huge variety of specialists that the hospital has. The views are unbelievable, I like the fact that it's not overcrowded like other hospitals in Miami.
I came to the emergency room. The staff was extremely nice. I didn't have to wait to be seen. The physicians and nurses who took care of me listened and treated me quickly to ensure I wasn't in pain. I am very pleased. Thank you for the excellent care.
... I think this hospital deserves a gold star, pat on the back or whatever they do in the medical field to signify a job well done.
