CITYWIDE — MOUNT SINAI MEDICAL CENTER, which runs 11 free-standing joint-venture centers in Brooklyn and the other boroughs, has launched its new Center for Healthcare Readiness. The Center’s launch, which Mount Sinai’s Icahn School of Medicine announced on Monday, May 20, brings together a diverse team of academic and operational experts to strengthen the Mount Sinai Health System’s strategies and the U.S. health care sector’s capacity to prepare for and respond to any large-scale public health emergency. The Center will work with both Mount Sinai’s own resources, and public and private partners at the local, regional, and federal levels, to pursue strategies in research, advocacy, innovation, and collaboration to plan for future challenges. The Center recently hosted its inaugural “The Future of Healthcare Preparedness Conference,” at which top experts in the field strategized ways to strengthen health care readiness for the 21st century. Notable speakers from the White House’s Office of Pandemic Preparedness and Response Policy, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and academia provided insight on emerging priorities across government, health care, and other industries — to ensure national health security during major health emergencies.

The conference also addressed opportunities to improve readiness by boosting collaboration among private corporations and the academic sector, and between the military and civilian sectors.
