From Grant Mitchell, MD (Chairman) and David Roane, MD (Program Director)

We are very excited to announce the plans for a new Comprehensive Behavioral Health Institute at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. The Institute will be housed in the Bernstein Pavilion, located on East 15th Street, just north of the East Village in Downtown Manhattan. The Pavilion will undergo a major renovation and, when completed, will house over 150 inpatient beds in Psychiatry and Addiction including a new state-of-the-art unit for adult and geriatric psychiatry. A Partial Hospital Program will be added to our existing continuum of outpatient services and our Electro-Convulsive Therapy program will expand significantly. The Institute will fully integrate psychiatric treatment with primary care and addiction services and will include new models of service delivery. There will be a centralized intake unit to provide rapid evaluations and facilitate access to all outpatient services. With these enhancements, Mount Sinai Beth Israel will be expanding its role as prominent provider of behavioral health services within the Mount Sinai Health Care System to better serve the needs of the local community and the tri-state area.

We urge prospective applicants to psychiatry residency to strongly consider our program. Those applicants who are interviewed will be introduced to the latest plans for our Institute and the anticipated timeline for the development of the new services and facilities. Interested applicants may also contact Dr. Roane, directly, at with any questions about the Institute and new vision for the downtown campus for Mount Sinai.
