Mount Sinai Hospital is a 431-bed teaching, research and tertiary-care facility providing health services to Chicago's West Side Community.
In February 2008, a $75,000 grant was made to the hospital which was used to refurbish its outpatient infusion center, the facility in which patients of the Sinai Cancer Care Center receive chemotherapy treatments. The project integrated the hospital's inpatient and outpatient services, allowed for additional chemotherapy patient privacy, substantially increased outpatient capacity and enhanced aesthetics of the physical space.
On June 20, Mt. Sinai Hospital held a ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the opening of the new Sinai Cancer Care Center.

Channing, President and CEO, Sinai Health System; and Dr. Pam Khosla, Medical Director, Oncology.
