Two Renowned Cancer Experts to Head New Tisch Cancer Hospital at The Mount Sinai Hospital


Two top cancer experts have been named to lead Mount Sinai’s new Tisch Cancer Hospital, which is under development and due to open in 2027. Cardinale B. Smith, MD, PhD, has been appointed Chief Medical Officer for the Tisch Cancer Hospital and Vice President of Cancer Clinical Affairs, and Ash Tewari, MBBS, MCh, has been appointed Surgeon-in-Chief of the Tisch Cancer Hospital.

The Tisch Cancer Hospital will be a state-of-the-art cancer facility at The Mount Sinai Hospital, thanks to a generous $60 million gift from James S. and Merryl H. Tisch. Under the leadership of Dr. Smith and Dr. Tewari, the Hospital, which is part of the Tisch Cancer Center launched last year, will transform oncologic care, expand access to life-saving breakthroughs, and promote Mount Sinai as a leader in cancer treatment and research.
