It is a 1,171-bed tertiary care teaching hospital, featuring a medical staff of nearly 1,800. The hospital is located at 100th Street and Fifth Avenue, on the eastern border of Central Park. Mount Sinai has numerous hospitals affiliates in the New York metropolitan area, including The Mount Sinai Hospital of Queens.
The medical library was originally located at Madison Avenue and 100th Street and was known as the Jacobi Library. This became the core of the new library of the school of medicine and is now known as the Levy Library.
