The Mount Sinai Health System recently announced a $60 million gift from James S. and Merryl H. Tisch to establish the Mount Sinai Tisch Cancer Center. The gift will support the construction of a modern, state-of-the-art cancer hospital at the Mount Sinai Hospital campus. The center will broaden access to breakthrough therapies, diagnostics, and clinical trials. This is the largest gift received by the Mount Sinai Health System for a cancer initiative.

In 2008, a $40 million gift from the family established The Tisch Cancer Institute, which has made advancements in cancer research across basic science, clinical care, and population health.

The new Tisch Cancer Hospital will consist of four floors with approximately 20 single-bed rooms on each floor. There will also be a series of clinical spaces designed to ease transitions between various stages of treatment. The hospital is expected to be completed by 2025.

The Mount Sinai Tisch Cancer Center will include the Tisch Cancer Hospital, The Tisch Cancer Institute at Icahn Mount Sinai, several Cancer Centers of Excellence, and a growing ambulatory cancer network. Patients will have access to more than 250 oncologists, surgeons, and researchers working throughout the New York metropolitan area, as well as a range of comprehensive medical services.
