The Mount Sinai Hospital | 100 Hospitals with Great Heart Programs 2017

The Mount Sinai Hospital (New York City). Mount Sinai Heart was established in 2006 to bridge efforts between Mount Sinai Hospital and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai for cardiovascular care, research and education.  Mount Sinai was the first U.S. hospital to use an electrocardiogram machine in 1909 and more recently became the first health system in New York to implant a total artificial heart as a short-term solution for a patient awaiting a heart transplant. Cardiovascular surgeons at the hospital perform more than 50 left ventricular assist device procedures per year, making it one of the largest LVAD programs in the country. The Mount Sinai Hospital was named the No. 9 hospital in the nation for cardiology and heart surgery by the U.S. News & World Report in 2017-18 and CareChex ranked the hospital No. 1 in New York for cardiac excellence.
