Mount Sinai renames heart hospital after cardiologist

New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System has renamed its top-ranked heart hospital as the Mount Sinai Fuster Heart Hospital.

The hospital was formerly named Mount Sinai Heart. The new moniker honors Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, physician-in-chief of The Mount Sinai Hospital and president of the Fuster Heart Hospital.

Dr. Fuster became director of Mount Sinai's heart institute in 1994 and physician-in-chief of the heart hospital in 2012. He is a prominent cardiologist and researcher who has played a significant role in shaping the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease over the past 25 years. Dr. Fuster also helped create a cardiovascular "polypill" that is currently pending FDA approval. 

"I am grateful for this honor, and proud of my life's work at Mount Sinai," he said in an Oct. 26 news release. "I can think of nothing more fulfilling than contributing to the understanding, prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, the No. 1 killer worldwide."
