New York, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2016
Mount Sinai Health System holds the top spot on New York magazine’s annual "Best Doctors" issue with 297 Mount Sinai physicians, including those who serve at network affiliates, appearing in the May 30 issue of the magazine.
The 2016 issue featured a total of 1,300 physicians from the New York metropolitan region. There were 250 physicians on the list from The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Queens, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai Beth Israel Brooklyn, New York Eye and Ear of Mount Sinai, Mount Sinai West, and Mount Sinai St. Luke’s. There were 47 physicians from Mount Sinai affiliate hospitals.
“We are very proud of our representation on this list and the extraordinary efforts of our faculty and staff to offer the best care to patients in this region and beyond,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and CEO of the Mount Sinai Health System. “This is a reflection of our deep commitment to deliver outstanding patient care and access to advanced approaches in medicine and research to the communities we serve.”
Mount Sinai is distinguished not only by the number of physicians included in the annual list, but also by the range of specialties represented, including cardiac electrophysiology, cardiovascular disease, child and adolescent psychiatry, dermatology, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, gynecologic oncology, neurology, neuroradiology, occupational medicine, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngology, pediatrics, psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine, surgery, and urology.
"The list is indicative of our ability to bring exemplary patient care to the community in a wide range of specialties and areas," said Dennis Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and President of Academic Affairs, Mount Sinai Health System. "The School provides for breakthrough research and collaboration that is critical to bringing the latest technologies and science to the patients and families we serve."
The 2016 list are based on a peer-review survey by Castle Connolly, a New York City research and information firm, that asks 12,000 medical professionals to nominate the physicians who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields.
Castle Connolly tabulates the results, vets the nominee pool, and selects the top 10 percent of the region’s physicians to be published in its annual guidebook, Top Doctors: New York Metro Area. For the past 19 years, Castle Connolly has been providing New York with a shorter version of this list for publication in the magazine.
