Mount Sinai embarks on first phase of $500M Mount Sinai Downtown Network

New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System has begun the first phase of its more than $500 million project to rebuild Mount Sinai Beth Israel and create the new "Mount Sinai Downtown" network.

The new network will include expanded and renovated outpatient facilities at three major sites with more than 35 operating and procedure rooms, as well as a network of 16 physician practice locations consisting of more than 600 physicians.

At the center of the Mount Sinai Downtown network there will be new MSBI inpatient hospital with operating and procedure rooms and a new emergency department. The new facility will be located two blocks away from MSBI's current location.

The project also includes a major investment to support and strengthen behavioral health services, as well as enhancements to the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai.

MSBI hospital will remain open throughout the transformation, and its emergency room will remain open until the new ED is fully operational at the new hospital.

"Our more than $500 million investment marks an exciting time, not only for Mount Sinai's employees and patients, but also the entire Downtown community, as we truly transform how patients access and receive the healthcare services they need," said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, CEO and president of the Mount Sinai Health System.
