Patient Care Settings
The rheumatology fellows train and provide care at the following patient care settings:
- The Mount Sinai Hospital, including the Center for Advanced Medicine (CAM)
- The Bronx VA Medical Center
The Mount Sinai Hospital
The Mount Sinai Hospital is a premier tertiary-care facility, drawing patients from surrounding communities, across the country, and around the world. More than 3,000 full-time and voluntary physicians treat nearly 47,000 inpatients and 427,000 outpatients each year. The Mount Sinai Hospital is part of The Mount Sinai Medical Center, which includes Icahn School of Medicine.
Center for Advanced Medicine
CAM brings all of Mount Sinai’s clinics together under one roof. This was the first step in a larger plan for the Department of Medicine: to enhance patient care while improving the educational experience for fellows across subspecialties. The design of the CAM building was executed in a way to meet the needs of both patient care and education. In addition, the Director of Ambulatory Care, David Thomas, MD, has unified the practices. Clinic and clerkship directors now meet regularly, identifying opportunities to bridge gaps and increase interaction among subspecialties.
The Bronx VA Medical Center
The Bronx VA Medical Center is the oldest VA facility in New York City, serving veterans for more than 75 years. The Medical Center is situated on a historic site in the borough of the Bronx.
In November of 2004, the President signed Public Law 108-422, officially renaming the Bronx VA Medical Center after long-time veterans’ advocate, James J. Peters, who served over 30 years as Executive Director of the Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association (now United Spinal Association).
On September 26, 2005, the medical center was officially renamed in honor of James J. Peters. The James J. Peters VAMC provides a broad range of inpatient and outpatient health care services and has four Community-Based Outpatient Clinics serving Bronx, Northern Queens, and Westchester counties.
