About Mount Sinai Clinical Laboratories
The Clinical Laboratories of the Mount Sinai Health System offer an extensive set of routine and complex tests that facilitate accurate diagnoses and optimal treatment plans. Combining modern robotic technology with the expertise of skilled pathologists and technologists, our fully accredited labs serve our 1,170 bed teaching hospital, its specialized centers, as well as extensive out-patient and community outreach programs. Our board-certified team members specialize in areas such as Molecular Pathology, Tumor Cytogenetics, and Virology, and work together to provide in-depth evaluation with rapid turnaround times. Along with our research and education activities, our laboratories' goal is to achieve the best possible care for our patients.
The strong rapport between pathology and clinical services facilitates our advances in understanding and treating disease. Many collaborative research opportunities exist intra- and interdepartmentally. Specimens that most laboratories may come across rarely, are seen very frequently because of the large specimen volumes we get. Mount Sinai is home to more of New York’s "Top Doctors" than any other hospital facility in the New York City area. In Castle Connolly's list of "America's Top Doctors," which ranks 3,415 physicians from hospitals nationwide, 84 of these are from Mount Sinai, the fifth highest total of any hospital on the list.
