Administrative history

The Board of Directors of the Jews' Hospital in the City of New York first met on February 25, 1852. The name of the corporation changed to Mount Sinai Hospital in 1866. The Board of Directors became the Board of Trustees at the annual meeting on January 28, 1917. The work of the Board is accomplished through the officers meeting in Executive Committee as well as through numerous standing and ad hoc committees.

Content and structure elements

Scope and content

A Trustee-led committee was created in 2001 to plan and create events to mark the sesquicentennial of The Mount Sinai Hospital’s founding in January 1852. The Chairman of the Committee was Trustee Ellen Katz.

A special 150th anniversary logo was created and regularly occurring events were ‘branded’ with the anniversary theme. Special events that were planned and carried out included: a kick-off event on January 16th, marking the actual 150th anniversary; a special Mount Sinai history exhibit at The Museum of the City of New York with an opening reception; a 150th Anniversary Community Health Day; and a 150th Anniversary Academic Symposium held in 2003.

This material consists of planning files and commemorative material from the various events held during 2002/2003 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of The Mount Sinai Hospital.

Archivist's note

This collection was created by the Archives staff to bring together the records regarding the celebration by The Mount Sinai Hospital of its 150th anniversary in 2002. The Archivist, Barbara Niss, was involved with the planning of the celebration. Robin Solomon from the President’s Office donated the proclamations in 2013. A framed proclamation signed by all Mount Sinai Trustees in 2002 was donated in 2016 when the former Board Room on Annenberg 5 was re-purposed.
