Who we are

Friends of Mount Sinai is a group of young professional leaders and families with a personal interest in the Mount Sinai Health System. The Friends share a passion for the importance of excellence in patient care, medical research, and education in their community.

Friends of Mount Sinai welcomes anyone interested in beginning or furthering a relationship with the Mount Sinai Health System. Friends are granted unparalleled access to Mount Sinai’s top physicians, scientists, and medical professionals through educational and social events and activities. In addition, Friends gain an insider’s perspective on the exciting advances in health care and research occurring at Mount Sinai. We hope that through these efforts Friends will develop a deeper understanding of the value and importance of engaging philanthropically with the Health System.
