Sinai Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Gynecology

Sinai Health System is pleased to announce that the Mount Sinai Hospital Gynecology Department has earned a three year certification as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG).  The COEMIG program recognizes that the integrated efforts and resources of both the surgeon and hospital are what provide lasting health benefits for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery patients. To earn the COEMIG designation, surgeons and hospitals must partner together and demonstrate a cross-organizational commitment to minimally invasive gynecologic surgical care. Carlos Sandoval-Herrera, MD, FACOG, Director of the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Division has become our surgeon of excellence along with the designation of COEMIG for Mount Sinai Hospital.            

The COEMIG program is focused on improving the safety and quality of gynecologic patient care and lowering the overall costs associated with successful treatment. It recognizes surgeons and facilities that demonstrate an unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care.

"Earning the center of excellence designation signifies our ability to consistently deliver the safest, highest-quality care to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery patients,” says Sandoval-Herrera. “The COEMIG program fosters quality improvement in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, and participation has focused our team on exceeding clinical benchmarks and guidelines. But most importantly, our commitment to excellence improves the health and well-being of our patients.”
