Health Outreach Programs
As an integral part of the western Queens community, Mount Sinai Queens is committed to serving our neighbors and keeping them healthy. We do this by providing quality inpatient and outpatient health care and also by proactively promoting good health and wellness for all.
Breast Health Program
In partnership with the New York State Department of Health Cancer Services Program and with funding from The Louis and Rachel Rudin Foundation, Inc., this program provides breast screenings and education for uninsured and underinsured women 40 years of age and older. We offer annual clinical breast exams, mammograms, and other diagnostic services, including biopsies, as needed. We also screen for cervical cancer with Pap and pelvic exams. These services are provided at no cost to eligible patients. Screenings are conducted by a surgical oncologist, experienced nurse practitioner, and a medical assistant. Volunteers from SHAREing and CAREing, a community-based support group for breast cancer survivors, provide waiting room support to patients. Monthly screenings are conducted at Mount Sinai Queens Family Health Associates, our outpatient health center. Patients are seen by appointment only. To schedule an appointment or for more information, please call 718-808-7727.
Colorectal Cancer Screening
This program, funded by the New York State Department of Health’s Cancer Services Program and Mount Sinai Queens, provides free colorectal cancer screening and education to men and women 50 years of age and older who are uninsured or underinsured with limited income. The program has evolved from a pilot project into a model as an innovative community-based response to colorectal cancer.
Stay Well Program
