New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai is a joint venture partner in two new ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) in the New York metropolitan region: Empire State Ambulatory Surgery Center, located in the Bronx, and North Queens Surgical Center, located in Queens.  The new centers, each equipped with four state-of-the-art operating rooms, are designed to provide surgical patients an array of services in one convenient location.
