About New York Eye and Ear
New York Eye and Ear Infirmary (NYEE) is part of the renowned Mount Sinai medical system, founded in the early 1800s as the first specialty hospital in the nation. Since then, NYEE continues to serve the Manhattan community, achieving prestigious awards and recognition for their excellent care.
