Institute was the vision of many people, designed to function as a free
standing eye specialty center associated with Mount Sinai Medical Center. It
was developed by and for ophthalmologists. The dream of creating this unique
facility was realized because of the persistence, determination and
resourcefulness of a large group of people. Jay
Phillips was the main benefactor of Mount Sinai Hospital and a strong supporter
of Mount Sinai's Division of Ophthalmology. Because of his generous
philanthropic support, Phillips Eye Institute bears his name.
