About the Foundation

A Legacy of Community Support

Mount Sinai Medical Center was founded in 1949 by a group of philanthropists who sought to establish a place where Jewish physicians could freely practice medicine and all persons regardless of “race, creed or color” could receive high quality medical care. More than six decades later, Mount Sinai remains a not-for-profit hospital providing vital healthcare services to all citizens. To meet the public’s expectation for quality medicine, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay, Mount Sinai Medical Center Foundation preserves the hospital’s rich tradition of philanthropy and community support.
