“We are very pleased to welcome our colleagues from Mount Sinai to our team of well-established pediatric subspecialists,” said J. Antonio Quiros, MD, DHA, Chair of Children’s Services for Valley Medical Group, and Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and faculty at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “Through this relationship, we will be able to expand our range of services and provide our pediatric patients the benefit of world-class expertise close to home, here in Bergen County.”

“We are proud to partner with Valley Health System to offer specialty children’s services in this region,” said Margaret Pastuszko, MBA, President and Chief Operating Officer of Mount Sinai Health System. “Mount Sinai and Valley are committed to providing high quality of care. Our shared mission to offer patients in northern New Jersey a higher level of specialty care from leading physician-scientists at Mount Sinai will have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of our patients and their families.”

“Against the backdrop of recent events, it is much easier to appreciate the importance of being able to bring to bear cutting edge medical research along with outstanding clinical care to our region’s children and families,” said Fernando Ferrer, MD, Chief Operating Officer, The Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital, Vice Chair of Hospital Operations, Department of Pediatrics, and Health Network Medical Director for Pediatric Services at Mount Sinai Health System. “Through this joint initiative, our organizations further extend our strong commitment to make this type of highly specialized pediatric care easily accessible and close to home.”

In December 2015, Valley and Mount Sinai announced plans to join forces on clinical programs, research, and educational offerings. The children’s health alliance is the second of such collaborations between the two organizations. In 2016, Mount Sinai and Valley announced Valley-Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Care to provide enhanced inpatient and outpatient cancer services by offering access to an expanded roster of clinical trials and Mount Sinai’s nationally renowned experts in the field of cancer care, and the development of new programs and services.

“Valley and Mount Sinai share a dedication to providing outstanding patient care,” said Audrey Meyers, President and CEO of Valley Health System. “We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Mount Sinai.”

New York City-based Mount Sinai comprises eight hospitals and Icahn Mount Sinai. Valley Health System, headquartered in Ridgewood, New Jersey, includes The Valley Hospital, Valley Home Care, and Valley Medical Group.
