Guest Wireless Access

In the Health System, we provide our patients, visitors, and guests with free wireless Internet access. "Hot spots" or wireless access points, are available in most Mount Sinai locations. This service provides the capability for patients and visitors to access the Internet at no charge on their devices.

There is no username or password required. To access this wireless network, guests simply need to connect to the mountsinaiguest wireless network. Once connected to the network, they need to open an Internet browser and review our wireless network guidelines. Once guests click on "ACCEPT" acknowledging that they accept these conditions and agree to conform to the policies, they will be ready to browse the web and use most Internet services.
