Mount Sinai Queens Community
Our hospital has been a cornerstone of the northwestern Queens community for more than a century. Much has changed in medicine and in the community since then, but the hospital’s commitment to the health and well-being of our neighbors endures.
We are the only hospital in Queens designated a primary Stroke Center by both the New York State Department of Health and the Joint Commission. We are also the only hospital in Queens to receive Magnet® recognition for nursing excellence by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Only eight percent of hospitals in the country have earned Magnet status. Both designations are considered the "gold standard" of health care.
Our Team Speaks More Than 35 Languages
Mount Sinai Queens serves the culturally and ethnically diverse communities of Astoria, Long Island City, and Sunnyside, as well as Jackson Heights, East Elmhurst, Woodside, Elmhurst, and Corona. Our culturally sensitive physicians and staff speak more than 35 languages, putting at ease those who primarily speak languages other than English. If no one on staff speaks a needed language, telephone translation can be accessed in real time.
At Mount Sinai Queens our skilled doctors, nurses, support staff, and experienced social workers are here to keep our neighbors in peak health in order to enjoy life to the fullest.
