The Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at Mount Sinai is proudly celebrating our 40th anniversary—and there is much to celebrate. Our Department was the first of its kind, setting the stage for modern geriatrics care and pioneering leadership in palliative medicine. With your support, Mount Sinai has revolutionized care for older adults, persons with serious illness, and their caregivers.
Most recently, our work and commitment to patient care was reflected in the U.S. News & World Report 2022-2023 rankings. The Mount Sinai Hospital ranked No. 1 in the nation for the care of older adults for the third consecutive year, while Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai Morningside, and Mount Sinai West were each among the top 10 percent of hospitals surveyed. Such recognition is a credit to every member, past and present, of our robust and dedicated team.
The Brookdale Department’s 2023 Specialty Report highlights our team’s achievements over the decades as well as major strides made in the last year. My hope is you and your institution can gain insights from what we have learned and accomplished. In particular, I invite you to learn more about our ongoing educational programs, research initiatives, and innovative clinical programs. I am also particularly proud of the Department’s diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
The Brookdale Department is grateful that we can continue providing the best possible geriatrics and palliative care for patients and families in New York and beyond. I thank you for your interest in our work and hope you are equally inspired by the team at Mount Sinai.
