Facilities and Equipment

We use Nuance (Powerscribe 360) voice-recognition dictation throughout the Mount Sinai system. These systems were integrated to a common server in September 2016 so that reports from Mount Sinai St. Luke's, West, Queens, Beth Israel and the Mount Sinai (East) sites are on one system. 

The radiology department has also recently unified our PACS system to a new version of GE PACS this fall (November 2016). This includes the Mount Sinai St. Luke's, West, Queens, Beth Israel and the Mount Sinai (East) sites.  Having a unified PACS system allows for access to great clinical and teaching cases across all MSHS sites.

There are 1.5 T MRI and 256-slice CT scanners at Mount Sinai West and St. Luke's sites. We installed a second 1.5T MRI at MS West. A 3T MR/PET and new 1.5 T MR will be installed at MS St. Luke's, as well as an intraoperative 3T MRI at Mount Sinai West.
We have Siemens single plane and biplane angiography equipment. The angiography suite at the Mount Sinai West site is modeled like an operating room, with its own holding area and procedure rooms in a sterile area.
Continued areas of growth reflect the institutional commitment to support the following clinical programs:

  1. Both the St. Luke's and WestSites are Designated Stroke Centers (SLW administered more TPA last year than any other Manhattan Hospital)
  2. Obesity center including surgery and laparsocopic surgery.
  3. Robotics in thoracic and cardiac surgery.
  4. Noninvasive treatment of vascular disease including aneurysms and stenosis.
  5. Women's specialty centers at both sites.
  6. CV Starr Hand Surgery Center (MS West).
  7. Orthopedic Surgery
  8. Movement Disorders and Epilepsy
  9. Intracerebral Hemorrhage Center
