Six Mount Sinai specialties were ranked in the top 20, and four others were among the top 50. The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai was also ranked nationally in two specialties: No. 12 in Ophthalmology and No. 50 in Ear, Nose, and Throat.

"The passion of our faculty and staff, along with a commitment to innovation, collaboration, and individualized patient care has made this recognition possible," said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System. "We are extremely proud to be on the Honor Roll and among the nation’s best centers as we continue to shape health care delivery, develop groundbreaking therapies and treatments, and recruit and retain elite physicians, researchers, and medical staff."

The Mount Sinai Hospital received Top 20 rankings in the following specialties: Cardiology/Heart Surgery (No. 9), Diabetes/Endocrinology (No. 19), Gastroenterology/GI Surgery (No. 8), Geriatrics (No. 3), Gynecology (No. 23), which went from a “high performing” specialty to its current rank, Nephrology (No. 10), and Neurology/Neurosurgery (No. 16). Ranking in the top 50 were; Cancer (No. 44), Orthopedics (No. 44); and Urology (No. 48). The hospital was also recognized as “high performing” in Pulmonology and Psychiatry.

“Mount Sinai continues to push the boundaries of scientific discoveries, improving methods of diagnosing and treating human disease,” said Dennis S. Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and President for Academic Affairs, Mount Sinai Health System. “The exceptional physicians, scientists, and staff provide high-quality care for our diverse communities.”

"I am honored to work with the fine team of physicians, nurses, and staff of The Mount Sinai Hospital and grateful for their dedication to quality, safety, and clinical excellence," said David L. Reich, MD, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Mount Sinai Hospital and the Horace W. Goldsmith Professor of Anesthesiology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “To be recognized among the nation’s best hospitals truly reflects the innovation and quality care that Mount Sinai provides.”
