A second respiratory clinic in New York City is now open thanks to an ongoing partnership between Mount Sinai Health System and National Jewish Health.
The new practice, at 10 Union Square East, underwent a $3.6 million renovation on the second floor of Mount Sinai Union Square and will offer treatment for respiratory ailments including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The first location—established through a joint venture between NJH and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai on East 102nd Street—opened in January 2016.
Mount Sinai partnered with NJH to adopt its multidisciplinary approach to treating respiratory diseases, said Dr Charles Powell, CEO of the Mount Sinai–National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute. The Union Square practice will house specialists in cardiology, otolaryngology, rheumatology and thoracic surgery.
