New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System is launching its own television series on a local cable channel run by The City University of New York.

Billed as a behind-the-scenes look at the health system, the series, "Mount Sinai Future You," will highlight Mount Sinai's contributions to science, medicine and new models of care. The show's scope is broad: One episode delves into how an artist's work was transformed after a brain tumor was removed; another looks at a cardiologist's research of ancient mummies.

"The broadcast highlights innovations, from preventive medicine to treatments, that are leading to improved health outcomes, and ultimately, a more fulfilling life," Dorie Klissas, Mount Sinai Health System's vice president of marketing and communications, said in a press release.

The show will air 30-minute episodes the first week of the month on CUNY-TV, a noncommercial educational-access only channel. "Mount Sinai Future You" is produced and edited by Nicci Hudson, a healthcare video producer. Shooting and editing support is provided by videographer Justin Gunn, and the show is written and hosted by Matt Kozar, a former reporter from WCBS-TV and CBS News.

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic also launched its own TV show this year through a collaboration with NBC News. Its show "Health + Happiness with Mayo Clinic" launched April 7.
