The Mount Sinai Medical Center has joined with Long Island Heart Associates in an affiliation agreement that will bring world-class clinical and surgical cardiovascular care to patients on Long Island.
"The clinical and diagnostic expertise at Long Island Heart Associates made it an ideal match for our cardiovascular center of excellence, Mount Sinai Heart," said Wayne E. Keathley, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Mount Sinai Hospital. "Together we will offer patients on Long Island the most advanced and innovative therapies for heart disease available today."
The new affiliation will streamline services for patients, who will gain access to world-renowned heart specialists and the most modern screening and imaging centers without the hassle of making appointments or waiting for them.
"The seamless communication and coordination of services between the two organizations will translate into quicker access to renowned physicians, faster test results, and a more satisfying experience for patients," said Mr. Keathley.
Long Island Heart Associates has served the area since 1994 and currently has nine physicians in six locations in Long Island and Queens. It offers patients state-of-the-art diagnostic care, an on-site nuclear lab, 24-hour pre-operative clearance, a hotel-style sleep lab, and the resources of the New York Heart Research Foundation.
