Founded in 1949, Mount Sinai Medical Center is the largest private independent not-for-profit teaching hospital in South Florida. Mount Sinai's Centers of Excellence combine technology, research and academics to provide innovative and comprehensive care in cardiology, neuroscience, oncology and orthopaedics. Among a select few statutory teaching hospitals in the state, Mount Sinai is the hospital of choice for those who seek the level of expertise and care that only a teaching hospital can offer, and our commitment to quality has been continuously recognized by U.S.News & World Report.
Mount Sinai has partnered with New York's prestigious Columbia University to create the Mount Sinai Heart Institute and the Columbia University Division of Urology at Mount Sinai, the only Ivy League affiliated programs in South Florida. These programs combine the strengths of two leaders in cardiovascular and urological care, enhancing the outstanding level of service and providing greater access to state-of-the-art technology, research and treatment options.
The Mount Sinai Heart Institute performs more of the most advanced minimally invasive cardiothoracic surgeries than any other hospital in the county; and it has the best survival rates in the state for complex, large-volume cases, according to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration.
In addition, Mount Sinai operates satellite centers to serve the region's growing population. In Aventura, the hospital's state-of-the-art freestanding emergency room, physician offices, diagnostic center and cancer center offer access to award-winning quality care. Mount Sinai's Key Biscayne satellite center provides cardiac care, cardiac prevention, adult primary care and physical exams, as well as consultations in internal medicine, geriatrics and preventive medicine. The hospital's Hialeah satellite center includes a full-service cardiology practice, staffed with bilingual nurses and board-certified cardiologists who are leaders in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease, the foremost cause of death in Hialeah. Mount Sinai Hialeah also offers specialized care in urology, internal medicine, endocrinology and neurosurgery. In Coral Gables, the hospital's outpatient center includes a diagnostic catheterization lab and a comprehensive sleep lab. – less
