The Department of Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has long been the home of the premier Division of Cardiology. Ranked 7th nationally for heart services by U.S. News & World Report, Mount Sinai Heart is celebrated internationally as a world leader in all facets of cardiology. 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.
