Life At Mount Sinai

Diversity at the Mount Sinai Health System

As a health care system that serves diverse communities in New York City and beyond, Mount Sinai is strongly committed to meeting the needs of people from all walks of life. That commitment has special meaning in our Department of Human Resources, which is responsible for recruiting, retaining and supporting the people who fulfill our multi-faceted mission of patient care, medical education, innovative research and community health care. The Department’s goal is to find the most highly qualified individuals for every position at Mount Sinai, help them reach their potential, and assist them as they help us maintain our tradition of excellence.

Our diversity management strategy is intended to foster and maintain a positive workplace environment. We aim to promote recognition and respect for the individual differences found among our workers. Specifically, we encourage associates to be comfortable with diversity in the workplace and develop an appreciation for differences in race, gender, background, sexual orientation or any other factors that may not be shared by everyone working in the same area of the organization.

Diversity is essential for better serving our patient and employee populations. Diversity among our professional and support staff is vital to meeting all these objectives. In fact, we believe that diversity is a driver for excellence within the Mount Sinai Health System. When the members of our team bring different experiences, perspectives and insights to their work, they help make Mount Sinai a hospital that is responsive to its widespread community, a leader in health care and a vibrant, interesting and fulfilling place to work.

At Mount Sinai, we seek to retain the best people and maintain a welcoming, nurturing work environment where they can develop professionally. With support from Mount Sinai leadership, we offer unparalleled mentoring and networking opportunities.
