The Mount Sinai Health System is a hospital network in New York City. The organization was formed as a merger between Continuum Health Partners and the Mount Sinai Medical Center in September 2013.

History[edit]

Continuum Health Partners[edit]

Continuum consisted of:

Continuum Health Partners, Inc. was formed in 1997 as a partnership of three institutions—Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Luke's Hospital, and Roosevelt Hospital.

Drawing on complementary strengths, offering a broad based fully integrated health services network throughout the New York City metropolitan region. This capability was augmented with the addition of The New York Eye & Ear Infirmary in 1999.

With a total combined annual operating budget of $2.1 billion, Continuum hospitals delivered inpatient care through nearly 3,100 certified beds located in seven major facilities in Manhattan and Brooklyn, while providing outpatient care in private practice settings and ambulatory centers. Continuum treated patients in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Westchester County.[2]

Contract dispute with Aetna[edit]

In April 2010, Aetna notified policyholders that it was in a contract dispute with Continuum Health Partners and that the contract would lapse as of June 5, 2010. The June 5 date passed and the contract lapsed.[3] Continuum Health Partners provided subscribers with a form to request that Aetna retain their physicians for one year or until the policy period ended.[4] On July 28, 2010, Continuum Health Partners announced a new agreement with Aetna. Within this agreement, it was noted that the effective date would be retroactive to the April 5, 2010, termination date.[5]

Merger with Mount Sinai[edit]

In September 2013, Continuum announced a merger with the Mount Sinai Medical Center. Brand unification was complete in January 2014.[6]
