When you choose Huntington Hospital for heart care, you join a vast system of integrated hospitals, research facilities, and hundreds of cardiac experts who are ready to take care of you, all at locations close to home. And if an emergency should arise, our SkyHealth critical care helicopter connects patients requiring heart surgery to our Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital in Manhasset.
We believe in excellence at Huntington Hospital. U.S. News & World Report named us among the top 5 percent of all hospitals in New York state and the highest ranked community hospital in New York state. Paired with four consecutive Magnet designations for excellence in nursing, Huntington Hospital has demonstrated a commitment to providing the patients we serve with outstanding care.
As part of Northwell Health, our patients have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials and research studies. That means we’re able to offer treatment options that may not be available at other institutions. Be sure to ask your team about research and clinical trial opportunities currently offered for your heart condition.
Cardiac outreach and education programs are designed to promote wellness in the communities we serve. Our cardiac team visits local businesses, schools and community groups on a regular basis to teach heart healthy living. Topics are designed to educate attendees on their risks for heart disease and encourage positive lifestyle changes.
Our cardiac specialists are part of Northwell Health Physician Partners, a dedicated team of doctors and staff who see patients in Huntington, Smithtown and other locations throughout Suffolk County. To schedule an appointment, call (855) HEART-11.
