Sinai Deaf Health

Mount Sinai offers a wide range of medical and support services to deaf and hard-of-hearing patients and their families. Although many of these patients have the same health concerns as hearing people, they find it difficult to find health providers with whom they can communicate. Sinai's Deaf Health program is one of very few programs nationwide that fully meets their needs.

Sinai is proud to be one of the first hospitals to utilize video relay service (VRS) booths. Sinai also has a staff of certified and licensed clinicians who are proficient in American Sign Language. Public TTYs are located in the Sinai E.R. and lobby and portable TTYs, telephone amplifiers and other assistive listening devices are available by request.
