Mount Sinai's Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory has again been awarded New York State's highest "two-star" safety rating in the categories of overall and non-emergency cases for 30-day risk adjusted mortality for percutaneous coronary intervention. Pedro Moreno, MD, Professor of Medicine (Cardiology), was one of only three physicians statewide to be individually recognized with a two-star rating. He joins three other Mount Sinai interventionalists who have received the two-star rating in the past: Samin Sharma, MD, Annapoorna Kini, MD, and Mazullah Kamran, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiology).
