The Department of Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has long been the home of the premier Division of Cardiology. Based at The Mount Sinai Hospital, it ranks as one of the top 10 in the country for its leading cardiology services by U.S. News & World Report. In fact, 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the practice of cardiology at The Mount Sinai Hospital. Now within the Mount Sinai Health System, cardiovascular services has a staff of nearly 200 cardiologists, 74 cardiology fellows in training, 107 nurse practitioners, and 1,037 nurses, caring for nearly 104,000 patients annually—doubling Mount Sinai’s patient care, research, and medical education capabilities. 

Although cardiac care in the Mount Sinai Health System has expanded, the mission remains the same: to improve the heart health of patients locally and globally, with dedication to the prevention, management, and eradication of cardiovascular diseases. The Division of Cardiology continues to pursue excellence in patient care, offering innovative prevention and treatments, pioneering research and clinical trials, and training future leading cardiologists by its world-leading experts.

The Zena and Michael A. Wiener Cardiovascular Institute is a swift conduit for the advancement of the art and science of cardiovascular medicine and surgery, enabling those with the spirit and ideas to fulfill their professional commitments to improving cardiovascular health. An academy for learning and for teaching, a laboratory for investigation and testing, a proving ground for the development and application of new technologies, the Cardiovascular Institute’s mission is to extinguish the spread of cardiovascular disease and replace it with a focus on health for our children and grandchildren.
