Why choose us?
At Northwell Health, we offer a wide range of services, evidence-based treatments and research to ensure that patients receive comprehensive cardiac care. Here's what you can expect from us:
Help with the prevention of problems before they happen: Even if you feel healthy, it's possible that you have — or are at risk for — a heart problem. We offer what's called preventive cardiology, which focuses on early detection, treatment and prevention of heart disease.
Proven quality: In a recent report from the New York State Department of Health, we had the highest success rate for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) and significantly better outcomes for non-emergency angioplasty. The health system has maintained the state’s best outcomes for patients undergoing surgeries to repair or replace heart valves and for those in need of surgeries for both valve and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
Electrophysiology treatment innovations: The advanced electrophysiology laboratories use the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies to improve patient care and outcomes. We are among the first to pioneer or offer novel procedures, including a pacemaker that can be safely used during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and developing cryoablation, a minimally invasive procedure to treat arrhythmias.
State-of-the-art catherization labs and techniques: Northwell Health has built several hybrid operating rooms that combine the imaging capabilities of a traditional cardiac catheterization laboratory with the functionality of a cardiac operating room. This allows interventional cardiologists and surgeons to collaborate on the most complex cardiac cases and exemplifies our commitment to the latest advances in cardiac care.
Patient-centered care: Patients are cared for as individuals with specific needs, and our clinical staff has the expertise and resources to customize treatments. A team of healthcare professionals, with a variety of expertise in multiple disciplines, devote time to learn about patients to deliver specialized care. Families are welcomed in this process, and are invited to participate in treatment.
Volume: Greater patient volume means more opportunities for physicians to perfect treatments and prove expertise. Northwell Health has the highest volume for interventions in New York state, including performing more than 7,000 percutaneous cardiac interventions and more than 2,000 open-heart surgeries.
Scale: With multiple hospitals, we provide patients with more choices, greater convenience and a wider network of experts available around Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk.
