Statement from Sinai Health System President and CEO on travel ban

The following is a statement from Karen Teitelbaum, Sinai Health System President and CEO.

“Since Mount Sinai Hospital first opened its doors in 1919, Sinai Health System has been proud to serve many immigrant communities. In partnership with the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, we have provided health care services to refugees from many countries including the former Soviet Union, Bosnia, Tibet, and Ethiopia. Our medical staff and caregivers come from all over the world to serve some of the most vulnerable communities in Chicago. We are proud to join with our Jewish Federation colleagues, the Archdiocese of Chicago, and many other groups to oppose any policy that bars certain groups of refugees solely because of their religion or country of origin.“
