Your heart deserves the very best care

At Northwell, our heart team is the most experienced in the state.* And that dedication to hearts shines across our entire network of care, from our local doctor’s offices to our nationally recognized heart centers—like Staten Island University Hospital Heart Institute. As the premiere destination for cardiac care in the area, the Heart Institute offers the most progressive cardiac diagnostics, treatment, post-surgical outpatient care and cardiac prevention programs. That's why Staten Island University Hospital received the highest possible rating (3-star) for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and it's recognized as a high performing hospital in heart failure and heart bypass surgery by U.S. News & World Report. By ensuring every Staten Islander—and New Yorker—has access to top heart care, we can truly thrive, together.

Turn to us for the most progressive cardiac diagnostics, treatment, postsurgical outpatient care and cardiac prevention programs.

We’re proud to be recognized for the exceptional care we deliver every day—like our heart failure procedure, which was rated as high performing by U.S. News & World Report for 2020-21.
