Making an impact – Recognizing the valuable contributions that nurses make to support the health and well-being of the patients we serve.

Jane Merkley, Mount Sinai’s Chief Nurse Executive

Welcome from Jane Merkley, Mount Sinai’s Chief Nurse Executive

Welcome to Mount Sinai Hospital Nursing. As the Chief Nurse Executive, it gives me great pride to call the nurses at Mount Sinai Hospital my colleagues. I feel honoured to work alongside such a committed and talented team of nursing professionals.

As part of our Academic Practice Strategy, each day our nurses lead innovative initiatives to support high-quality, safe and compassionate care. They help deliver major projects such as our redevelopment project Renew Sinai. Our nurses empower and teach the next generation of nurses and conduct research to improve patient care. Their work elevates the importance and impact of the role of nursing and how it shapes the future of health care at the bedside, in the community and for Sinai Health. Most importantly, our nurses offer hope, support and advocacy for our patients and their family caregivers.

From our CEO

Whether it’s an elderly patient with pneumonia, or a family with a baby in the NICU, the one constant in care is your nurse. Investing in nursing is investing in care. They can’t do their best work unless they feel they are in an institution that cares deeply about what they do and values their performance every day of the year.

- Dr. Gary Newton, President and CEO, Sinai Health
