Ronald O. Perelman Heart Institute of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center Opens as a Center for Innovative, World-Class Cardiac Care and Patient Education
Date:9/14/2009

t up-to-date information on the latest innovations in cardiovascular health. Although women are twice as likely as men to die after suffering a heart attack, until recently cardiovascular health was primarily considered a man's issue. As a result, women are much less likely to seek treatment when they experience a cardiac incident, often because they fail to identify the symptoms until it is too late. The Perelman Heart Institute will bridge this gender gap in information and outcome. Outreach to women will be a particular focus of the Hospital's ongoing efforts to educate the community about preventative measures against this deadly disease.

"I am pleased that the opening of this state-of-the-art Institute at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell will result in even better cardiac care for patients today and in the future," said Mr. Perelman. "Especially important is the Institute's focus on women's health -- doing more, through education, to prevent women from developing heart disease and, when necessary, ensuring that they receive the finest available care. It is critical that women's heart health issues receive the attention and resources they deserve."

"Ron Perelman's remarkable gift is allowing our highly skilled physicians and researchers to build on an already strong foundation, establishing new standards of quality care and a new concept of what is possible for patients and their families," said Dr. Pardes. "The Institute is led by a stellar medical team, who have an international reputation of performing cutting edge surgery and cardiological care, upholding the most exacting standards for the benefit of our patients. They are poised to train the next generation of heart specialists and explore new boundaries in medicine."

The Heart Institute will be led by O. Wayne Isom, M.D., chairman and Terry Allen Kramer Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Cardiothoracic Surgeon-in-Chief, and Bruce Lerman,
