Mount Sinai Heart
Mount Sinai Heart in Queens is an award-winning group of cardiologists who are experts in treating patients with acute, chronic, and rare heart conditions. Most of our cardiologists, who are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, have dual appointments at Mount Sinai Queens and The Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, and split their time between the two campuses. As a result, you are able to see many of the same cardiologists who treat patients in Manhattan, while being able to stay in your own neighborhood.
Our cardiologists treat:
- Arrhythmia or Heart Rhythm Disorders
- Heart Attacks and Coronary Artery Disease
- Valvular Heart Disease
With access to high-tech imaging and exceptional cardiologists, we can treat the majority of our cardiac patients in Queens. We offer full cardiology services, including non-invasive diagnostics such as echocardiograms, stress testing, vascular testing, and nuclear imaging. Our state-of-the-art treatment options include interventional electrophysiology procedures, implantable cardio rhythm monitoring and management devices; and remote monitoring services.
We are the only hospital in Queens designated by both the New York State Department of Health and The Joint Commission as a primary stroke center. As such, we have extensive experience with acute cardiac problems such as heart attacks, stroke, arrhythmias, and congestive heart failure.
As part of the Mount Sinai Health System, we can seamlessly refer or transport you to one of our other hospitals, should the need arise. For instance, if you require an invasive cardiac surgical procedure, we can refer you to a cardiovascular surgeon or if your child is diagnosed with a heart condition, we can provide a referral to an appropriate specialist. We transmit patient records, including charts, laboratory work, and imaging studies, through a secure electronic system.
At Mount Sinai Queens, we are sensitive to the needs of our multicultural community. Our cardiologists come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and speak several languages including Greek, Italian, and Spanish. We also have interpreters available upon request. We are actively involved in the community, providing educational outreach programs and heart disease screenings for our neighbors.
