Mount Sinai Health System Careers

Do you have what it takes to wear the badge?

 

Whether our Nurse Practitioners are caring for a critically ill patient as part of an interdisciplinary team or assisting in a groundbreaking surgery, they all have one common goal – to provide world-class patient care.  At Mount Sinai, we advance innovation by leveraging progressive technologies, such as our state-of-the-art simulation training labs. We encourage autonomy among our NP’s by fostering an environment that is focused on building strong relationships with our patients through earning & keeping their trust. Resilience is a requirement, as every day brings a new set of challenges.

 
A New Model

The Mount Sinai Health System and UNITE HERE HEALTH (UHH) are collaborating to build a better primary care model and have a positive impact on the UniteHere Local 54 union community.

 

UHH built a health center to provide high quality care for the unionized hospitality industry workers for whom it provides health benefits.  This health center is located in downtown Atlantic City, NJ. 

 

Mount Sinai and UHH want to focus on keeping patients healthy at home, and to help patients avoid expensive and unpleasant ED visits and hospital admissions.  In this new model, providers, nurses, and health coaches will work as a team alongside mental health specialists to address the many different needs a patient may have.  Health coaches will also work with the pharmacy, lab, x-ray and physical therapy services that are on site at the UHH health center to help patients access other services as needed.

 

Together, we believe that there is a better way of delivering care that can make healthcare more fulfilling experience for both providers and patients. We are looking for team members to help build this future.
