At Northwell Health, we treat more heart failure patients than any other heart transplant center in New York state. The result? We have unparalleled experience in this complex discipline, and we’re prepared to treat even the most challenging cases. 

Each patient benefits from a personalized treatment plan that may include medication, dietary changes and exercise. When more advanced care is needed, the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital—located at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset—offers a full range of heart failure treatment options, including LVAD and heart transplant. Led by a team of renowned medical and surgical heart failure specialists recruited from prominent institutions across the country, the Heart Hospital is positioned to transform the delivery of care for patients in our community.

We’re changing the future of heart care

We put all of our heart into creating one of New York’s best heart failure programs. See how we care for patients differently.

Treatments we offer

Our expert team uses the most innovative surgical technologies. We have Long Island’s largest and most successful LVAD program—a specialized heart pump available only at leading heart centers.

Heart transplantation is as intricate as cardiac surgery gets, and we’re at the forefront. We are the first and only full-service heart transplant program across Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island.
