ENTA has a clinical alliance with The Mount Sinai Hospital for the treatment of diseases of the head and neck and esophageal cancer, a clinical alliance with the Montefiore Medical Center and Northwell Health for the tertiary treatment of pediatric patients and a partnership with the American Cancer Society to educate and treat patients with smoking disorders and cancer.
Montefiore Health System:
ENT and Allergy Associates and Montefiore Health System, the University Hospital for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, have created a clinical affiliation that holds enormous value for the residents of the Bronx and Hudson Valley. It offers pediatric patients found to be in need of tertiary care for diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), head, and neck, a quick and seamless transition from the convenience and comfort of community medicine to the expertise of academic medicine so they may receive unparalleled comprehensive care. Through this affiliation, pediatric patients will benefit from newly created protocols that begin, as always, with care provided by the superb physicians of ENTA. Patients who are found to need hospital attention will be quickly and seamlessly transferred to Montefiore within 24 to 48 hours, as will their medical records through coordinated and secure Electronic Health Record Systems. Post hospital stay, coordinated care teams will continue treatments and recovery, as needed.
The Mount Sinai Hospital:
The Mount Sinai Hospital and ENT and Allergy Associates have formed a uniquely powerful and patient-focused affiliation to fight head and neck cancer and esophageal cancer, which provides a world class, first-of-its-kind approach to superior healthcare. Our patients benefit from a complete head and neck evaluation in the comfort of their local ENT and Allergy Associates office. Cases that require treatment at a tertiary level hospital seamlessly transition to the team at the Mount Sinai Head and Neck Cancer Center. Following treatment at Mount Sinai, patients transition back for aftercare treatment in their own neighborhood ENT and Allergy Associates office. The affiliation is a true integration of community and academic based healthcare, in a delivery model that provides maximum benefits to those in need of tertiary help. The Mount Sinai Hospital is a renowned leader in the management of head and neck disease and esophageal cancer, providing each patient with a team of nationally recognized physicians and surgeons to provide state-of-the-art care.
ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA) and Northwell Health (formerly the North Shore/LIJ Health System) have created a unique clinical affiliation benefitting the pediatric residents of Nassau, Suffolk and Queens County. This teaming provides a seamless and patient friendly bridge between community based and academically based medical care-the first of its kind for Long Island-offering the quickest, most convenient and most comprehensive solution for children who are found to need tertiary pediatric ENT care. The ENTA/Northwell affiliation means that pediatric patients can begin their care in the comfort and familiarity of their neighborhood ENTA office, and be transferred--if needed—within only 24 to 48 hours to the Cohen Children’s Medical Center at Northwell facilities for treatment of complex issues. Medical records are sent over immediately. Patients then return for aftercare treatment in their own communities.
American Cancer Society:
ENT and Allergy Associates partnered with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to promote awareness of the dangers of smoking, encourage smoking cession and to educate patients and the overall community about the benefits of prevention and early detection. In 2009, ENTA expanded that affiliation by initiating a relationship with the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in Manhattan. Hope Lodge is a state-of-the-art, all green facility that offers free housing to cancer patients and their caregivers while they undergo treatment in Manhattan. More specifically, ENT and Allergy and the Mount Sinai Medical Center teamed up to donate a $300,000 gift to Hope Lodge, dedicating the hearth at the center’s Great Room, where guests find warmth and communal support.
