The Mount Sinai Hospital, one of New York City's oldest and most distinguished hospitals, has been in existence since 1852. Founded as the Jews' Hospital in New York (the name was changed in 1866), the Hospital was originally located on West 28th Street (pictured). From 1872 to it was located on Lexington Avenue and East 66th Street. Since then it has been at its present location on Fifth Avenue and 100th Street.

Mount Sinai continued to be a pioneering research and teaching hospital throughout the twentieth century. With the opening in 1968 of its sister institution the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, the Hospital became the clinical side of the combined Mount Sinai Medical Center.

In 2013, when The Mount Sinai Medical Center merged with Continuum Health Partners, The Mount Sinai Hospital became one of the seven hospitals that make up the Mount Sinai Health System. The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is affiliated with each of the hospitals.
