Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health Receive $12M+ in New Funding

The Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health received more than $12 million in two new five-year contracts from the New York State Department of Health’s Occupational Health Clinic Network. The money will support injured and sick workers in the Mid-Hudson Valley and New York City regions—$1,341,000 per year for the city and $1,085,000 per year for the mid-Hudson.

The Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health include a dedicated interdisciplinary team of occupational medicine physicians, ergonomists, industrial hygienists, and education and outreach specialists, all committed to promoting the health and safety of workers in various regions across New York State. In 1987, a groundbreaking report on occupational diseases in New York, spearheaded by physicians at the Selikoff Centers, prompted the state to authorize the establishment of the New York State Occupational Health Clinic Network; it is the only state with such a network. Today, the Selikoff Centers proudly carry on the legacy of this historic initiative, providing specialized care, preventive services, and advocacy for workers across the Mid-Hudson Valley and the five boroughs of New York City.
