The Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, and Integrated Medical Professionals, PLLC (IMP)-a multispecialty practice that includes Advanced Urology Centers of New York and Advanced Radiation Centers of New York-have formed a partnership to provide easier access to screening, assessment, and treatment for complex urologic conditions, as well as improved access to radiation oncology services.

Under the new affiliation with Mount Sinai, IMP patients who require tertiary or quaternary care procedures, including cystectomy or nephrectomy, complex renal and robotic surgeries, or complicated reconstruction will be referred to Mount Sinai. A Mount Sinai representative dedicated to IMP patients will help them navigate the scheduling and admissions process, ensuring a seamless transition to Mount Sinai, according to an IMP statement.

IMP and Mount Sinai physicians will have access to each other’s electronic medical records, allowing them to monitor the patient’s test results, procedures, and treatments so they are up to date on the patient’s care. Upon completion of the procedure at Mount Sinai, the patient returns to their IMP physician for follow-up. Mount Sinai physicians can refer patients requiring radiotherapy to one of Advanced Radiation Centers of New York’s six sites located throughout the New York metropolitan region.

"We are extremely pleased to form this partnership with Mount Sinai," said Deepak A. Kapoor, MD, of IMP. "As always, our goal is to provide the best patient care we possibly can. Working seamlessly together with Mount Sinai is simply an extension of that mindset and an important bridge for patients, combining the assets of a major academic institution with those of a community practice of the highest quality."

IMP and Mount Sinai urologists will work together to promote early detection of complex urologic conditions and provide state-of-the-art screening, assessment, and treatment tailored to each patient’s needs. They will also collaborate on research initiatives for a broad spectrum of urologic conditions.

"This unique collaboration will create a seamless transition from the stellar services patients receive with IMP to the world-class care for which Mount Sinai is known," said Simon Hall, MD, of the Mount Sinai Medical Center. "We look forward to offering these patients access to Mount Sinai’s renowned experts in complex urology."
