Most surgical residents live in Mount Sinai-owned apartments in Manhattan's Upper East Side, within walking distance of the hospital. They can choose from several different buildings with a range of layouts and amenities from studios to two-bedroom apartments, some with doormen, balconies and on-site parking.

Residents also have access to subsidized housing in the Jane B. Aaron Residence Hall, located across the street from Mount Sinai. Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, a fitness room, an entertainment lounge and on-site laundry facilities. For more information, residents should contact the Mount Sinai Real Estate Office at 212-659-9630.

A small percentage of residents live in other areas of Manhattan, the outer boroughs or in New Jersey. Mount Sinai is just blocks away from the 96th Street subway station, making public transportation convenient. Residents who drive can take advantage of discounted garage parking near the facility.


The Recreation Office also offers additional, fringe benefits, such as discounts on sporting events, theater tickets, movies and health-club memberships.
