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.
