As cardiovascular diseases have gained a larger foothold around the globe, our Cardiovascular Institute has kept the Mount Sinai Health System at the forefront of cardiovascular translational research. The Institute was created to more closely connect our research advances with the clinical practice of medicine, with the goal of displacing cardiovascular disease and the leading cause of death worldwide.
The rapid translation of innovative research concepts into prevention, diagnosis, and therapy means that patients receive multidisciplinary treatment of unprecedented quality. Our programs span patient care from the earliest stages of life—our pediatric cardiologists can detect cardiac disease in the unborn fetus—well into advanced age, through specialized geriatric cardiology.
Dedicated to understanding and eradicating disease, the Cardiovascular Institute joined forces with the Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Center for Cardiovascular Health at Mount Sinai in 2006. The Kravis Center is dedicated to promoting health, and together, the two entities form today's Mount Sinai Heart. Our Cardiovascular Institute remains the leading translational research hub of Mount Sinai Heart.
