Tisch Cancer Institute in Hess Building

Mount Sinai's new Leon and Norma Hess Center for Science and Medicine is providing a new home for many of The Tisch Cancer Institute's researchers and clinicians. Cancer research and treatment are playing a prominent role in the Hess building, including two full floors of dedicated cancer laboratory research space, and two floors of dedicated clinical space.

The expanded Derald H. Ruttenberg Treatment Center (our outpatient treatment facility) is located on floors three and four of the Hess Center. The Ruttenberg Center is now comprised of 50,000 square feet of space providing 54 infusion suites, 48 examination rooms, expanded laboratory testing, and an onsite pharmacy – including a research pharmacy.  Radiation oncology, cancer radiology, and the Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute will also be housed in the new building, allowing for state-of-the-art equipment and technicians as well as a seamless diagnostic and treatment experience for patients.

Floors five and six of the Hess Center are dedicated to laboratory cancer research, creating an additional 42,000 square feet of Tisch Cancer Institute laboratory space and providing room for the recruitment of approximately 20 new cancer scientists. In addition to laboratory space, the building will allow for the expansion and development of additional and expanded shared resources that will be used by Tisch Cancer Institute members.
