NEW YORK, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mount Sinai Medical Center has joined with Long Island Heart Associates in an affiliation agreement that will bring world-class clinical and surgical cardiovascular care to patients on Long Island.

"The clinical and diagnostic expertise at Long Island Heart Associates made it an ideal match for our cardiovascular center of excellence, Mount Sinai Heart," said Wayne E. Keathley, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Mount Sinai Hospital. "Together we will offer patients on Long Island the most advanced and innovative therapies for heart disease available today."

The new affiliation will streamline services for patients, who will gain access to world-renowned heart specialists and the most modern screening and imaging centers without the hassle of making appointments or waiting for them.

"The seamless communication and coordination of services between the two organizations will translate into quicker access to renowned physicians, faster test results, and a more satisfying experience for patients," said Mr. Keathley.

Long Island Heart Associates has served the area since 1994 and currently has nine physicians in six locations in Long Island and Queens. It offers patients state-of-the-art diagnostic care, an on-site nuclear lab, 24-hour pre-operative clearance, a hotel-style sleep lab, and the resources of the New York Heart Research Foundation.

Mount Sinai Heart, one of the nation's leading centers for cardiac research and clinical care, will appoint a representative to Long Island Heart Associates offices to meet with patients and coordinate their care at Mount Sinai. A Mount Sinai cardiologist will also consult with patients at Long Island Heart Associates offices on a regular basis. Transportation will be provided to and from Mount Sinai's Manhattan campus for patients undergoing certain procedures.

"Long Island Heart Associates is now affiliated with the best academic medical center in New York City," said Steven Shayani, MD, Medical Director of Long Island Heart Associates. "Our patients have access to the latest and most advanced cardiovascular research, education and treatment. By complementing our resources with Mount Sinai's, we are truly providing our Long Island patients with the very best care available anywhere in the world."
