Mount Sinai Intranet

The goal of the Mount Sinai Intranet is to provide a web-based platform by which all members of the Organization can easily access information relative to the Mount Sinai as well as individual campus Intranets. The architecture of this web site is derived from the Mount Sinai structure in that the content relative to each entity is presented in a uniform and easy to access manner. Additionally, this approach suggests that each entity in the Organization can retain its own identity and autonomy.
By design, our Intranet is accessible only from within The Mount Sinai Hospital and selected campuses of the organization, or from sources that have appropriate security access (e.g. Onsite Health). It can therefore lend itself to provide internal Information that is not meant for public consumption (e.g. the Internet).
