The Need Is Great, the Time Is Now
Your gifts are invested in Mount Sinai Queens so we can be ready when you need us most – ready with an excellent staff, sophisticated equipment and programs that make it easy for you to receive high-quality care near your home or office.
We hope you never have an emergency that makes you grab the phone and dial 911. But emergencies happen. And when they do, you want the best care possible. Excellence matters. While other hospitals in Queens were closing in recent years, we’ve been investing in our facility and strengthening our staff.
Health Care Today
We’ve advanced our orthopedics program, for example, so that patients can have the most cutting-edge joint replacements and sports medicine procedures at Mount Sinai Queens. We’ve upgraded operating room equipment and invested in growing our community health practices. We’ve also focused on minimally invasive surgeries that allow our patients to get home quickly and sleep in their own beds.
All of that takes money. Unfortunately, in these difficult economic times, the funds that non-profit hospitals receive from insurance companies, Medicare, and Medicaid do not fully cover costs. Moreover, Mount Sinai Queens treats uninsured and underinsured patients. Donors can help us meet that important part of our mission to the community.
Preparing for the Future
We invite you to join with Mount Sinai Queens as we look ahead to the next decade. Since becoming part of The Mount Sinai Hospital in 1999, we’ve expanded programs, recruited new high quality physicians, and focused on making major improvements to our facility. We have much more to do. Our patients deserve state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. This will be even more important as the number of people in our service area grows with more new housing in Long Island City and other parts of western Queens.
Please Support Your Community Hospital
To accomplish our goals, we ask your help.
We hope you agree that patients are already benefitting from the rebirth of our hospital as Mount Sinai Queens. Providing high quality and compassionate care by staff who understand the vibrant melting pot that is western Queens while benefitting from being part of a world-class academic medical center is our commitment to our patients. It’s offering "the comfort of community, the confidence of Mount Sinai.”
Different Ways to Give
Donors may direct their tax-deductible gift to a specific area of the hospital, or make a gift to the Annual Fund, which will allow us to use funds in areas where they are most needed. Your gift can also recognize excellent care provided by a nurse during a hospital stay.
The Fund for Mount Sinai Queens
We rely on annual gifts to fund our hospital programs, expand services and invest in our facility to upgrade and replace equipment.
Our Emergency Department is the front door of the Hospital for over 50,000 patient visits. We are committed to delivering excellent care, ensure using the latest state-of-the-art equipment and to expanding the size the Emergency Department into a new building. Your donations make a difference. You can designate your gift for the Emergency Department Fund.
Planned or Estate Giving
Donors who make planned or estate gifts, during their lifetime or after, enjoy many financial benefits for themselves and their families, while also benefitting Mount Sinai Queens.
