Within the next year, a Mount Sinai retail pharmacy and Mount Sinai Express Care — an urgent care clinic associated with the hospital’s emergency room — will also open on the first floor of the building.

“The opening of Mount Sinai Queens-Crescent Street marks a transformative milestone in our ability to provide a wide range of health care services for the Queens community,” said Cameron R.
