MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mount Sinai Medical Center is among the top hospitals in the nation for heart attack survival. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare data, Mount Sinai is among the top 30 hospitals in the country and the #1 hospital in Florida for heart attack survival. A high heart attack survival rate means that Mount Sinai provides a seamless, highly organized system of care for heart attack patients from the moment patients enter the emergency room to when they arrive at the cardiac catheterization lab to open up the coronary artery.
As Florida's premier cardiovascular program, Mount Sinai also offers patients the best cardiac surgical outcomes among Florida hospitals performing more than 621 cases.*
Mount Sinai's affiliation with New York's prestigious Columbia University is the only Ivy League partnership of its kind in South Florida and recognizes the outstanding, results-driven cardiac care delivered by Mount Sinai's physicians, many of whom hold academic appointments at Columbia University.
The Most Experience
Mount Sinai's doctors offer extensive experience in heart valve surgery , and they are among the most experienced in minimally invasive valve surgery in the United States. In fact, more valve surgeries are performed at the Mount Sinai Heart Institute than any other hospital in South Florida. Mount Sinai's minimally invasive valve repair and replacement techniques are shown to result in less physical trauma and better long-term outcomes than more traditional heart surgical procedures.
Mount Sinai's exceptional team of physicians also includes several leading, world-renowned specialists in a variety of advanced cardiovascular treatment techniques, including:
- Transradial percutaneous coronary intervention to open obstructed coronary arteries through a small artery in the wrist
