Goals and Background

Our goal is to foster an environment of compassion and care while teaching excellent clinical medicine to enable residents to become exemplary doctors attuned to the needs of the communities they serve.

For over 93 years Mount Sinai Hospital has maintained a rich tradition of providing excellent, hands-on training in Internal Medicine. Currently, our program offers fellowship training in cardiology, pulmonary medicine, endocrinology, and infectious disease. These are ACGME accredited programs integrated with Rosalind Franklin University/Chicago Medical School.

Located on the west side of the city of Chicago and serving a population base of 750,000 people, Sinai Health System consists of several member organizations located in a four square block main campus: Mount Sinai Hospital, Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital, Sinai Children's Hospital, Sinai Community Institute, Sinai Medical Group, and Sinai Urban Health Institute. Our newest member of the organization is Holy Cross Hospital, a 274-licensed bed community hospital that provides multidisciplinary services. Sinai has a number of clinics that are located on the west and south sides of Chicago. There is also one facility, Sinai's Touhy Clinic on the north side of Chicago, which sees refugees from many nations (for example Sudan, Iraq and Burma) as well as resident Orthodox Jewish and Russian populations. With the exception of the Touhy Clinic, Sinai Health System serves primarily African-American and Latino patients.

Mount Sinai Hospital, including Sinai Children's Hospital, is one of the largest Medicaid providers in Illinois with ninety-three (93) percent of Sinai's patients classified in minority race categories. A 291-bed tertiary care hospital and Level I Trauma Center, Mount Sinai Hospital is located in the heart of Chicago's Lawndale neighborhood where it has been a stabilizing presence in the city's west side for over 90 years, providing advanced medical care and social services to some of Chicago's most economically vulnerable communities.
