Hospitals and Their Numbers

When you think of the 3 hospitals serving the Harlem area (Metropolitan, Mount Sinai, and Harlem), how would you rank them in terms of size/capacity? If you thought that Mount Sinai was the largest of the 3, you would, of course, be correct. What you may not know is just how (relatively) large Mount Sinai is.


Harlem Hospital Center is located at 506 Lenox Avenue. Harlem Hospital Center provides a
wide range of medical, surgical, diagnostic, therapeutic, and family support services and is
designated as a Level 1 Trauma Center. In 2015, there were 272 beds in service, 213,626
outpatient visits, and 83,154 emergency room visits.


Mount Sinai Hospital is located at 1468 Madison Avenue. Mount Sinai Hospital is a 1,171-bed
tertiary-care teaching facility. The Mount Sinai Hospital is part of the larger Mount Sinai Health
System, which includes seven other hospital campuses with a combined 3,400,000 outpatient
visits and 425,451 emergency department visits.

Metropolitan Hospital Center is located at 1901 First Avenue and is a full service community
hospital. In 2015, there were 325 beds in service, 313,742 outpatient visits, and 69,583
emergency room visits.
