The Palliative Care Program at Mount Sinai Medical Center was developed as a response to the physical and emotional needs of hospitalized patients and families facing serious and life-threatening illness. The Institute was officially inaugurated in 1995 with an educational initiative funded by the Project on Death in America. Clinical services began in 1997 with the creation of an in-patient consultation service. In 1998, the program was privately endowed and renamed the Hertzberg Palliative Care Institute. Through our acclaimed clinical services, renowned research programs, and diversified educational initiatives, the Institute is helping to set the standard for palliative care throughout the United States.
