Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) is a hospital in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Although it is physically linked by bridges and tunnels to two University Health Network hospitals (Toronto General Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital), Mount Sinai is an independently operated facility. It is one of many hospitals on Hospital Row, a section of University Avenue where several major hospitals are located. In its most recent annual charity information return to the Canada Revenue Agency in 2005, the hospital reported having assets of roughly $520 million CAD.

Mount Sinai Hospital has existed in Toronto since 1923 under various names; it has occupied its present site on University Avenue since 1973. As of 2007, Mount Sinai operated 472 inpatient beds. In the fiscal year ending March 2004, MSH admitted nearly twenty-five thousand patients, delivered almost seven thousand babies, and carried out almost nineteen-thousand operations. Toronto and area residents made more than half a million ambulatory visits to Mount Sinai.

More than 600 staff work at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, Mount Sinai's research facility. The Institute was established in 1985. Many of its researchers hold faculty appointments at the University of Toronto.

In October 2008, Mount Sinai Hospital was named one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc., which was announced by the Toronto Star newspaper.[1]

History

It was founded in 1923 as The Toronto Hebrew Maternity and Convalescent Hospital. In 1924, the name was changed to Mount Sinai Hospital. Mount Sinai Hospital was founded as an institution to provide culturally appropriate services to the Jewish community as well as poor immigrant and non-English speaking communities, in addition to interning positions and hospital privileges for Jewish doctors.[2] These Jewish doctors were denied these opportunities due to discrimination.[2] Today, Mount Sinai has the largest number of volunteers of all hospitals in Canada. There are over 20,000 registered volunteers. It is affiliated with many Universities, including University of Toronto.
