The Sinai Health System (corporately styled as Sinai Health) is a hospital system which serves Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It comprises two hospitals, Mount Sinai Hospital (an acute care hospital) and Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital (a rehabilitation hospital), both affiliated with the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine.

In the 2019–2020 fiscal year, there were nearly 29,000 inpatient stays and 59,700 emergency department visits for Mount Sinai Hospital. The average length of stay for inpatients was 4.4 days.[1]
