Mount Sinai Hospital in Cleveland opened in 1903 on East 32nd Street, originally as a Jewish hospital.[1] It provided a hospital for Jewish doctors who were not allowed to practice in other hospitals in the city at the time because of anti-Semitism.[2][3] It quickly became known as a hospital for the city's poorer inhabitants, whether Jewish or not.

In 1908, Dorothy Dworkin trained and would receive her diploma from the Medical State Board of Ohio during her time at the hospital.[4] The hospital moved to a larger facility on East 105th Street in 1916.

It is known for pioneering the separation of conjoined twins. Sidney Lewine was a director of the hospital in the 1960s and '70s.

The hospital closed in February 2000, and was replaced with the Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation on 11000 Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio.
