Heart Disease Is On the Rise
Despite remarkable improvements in care, cardiovascular disease remains the single greatest threat to American public health. Every 16 seconds, someone in the United States experiences a coronary event. Experts project that more than 40 percent of the country’s population will have some form of cardiovascular disease by 2030.

With Your Help, We’re Making a Difference
As one of the oldest cardiac clinics in the country, NYU Langone understands that a comprehensive approach—expert care, less invasive therapies, and enhanced prevention and education techniques—will reduce cardiovascular problems nationally.
We’ve been innovating in cardiovascular care for more than a century. Our medical milestones include mitral valve repair and heart imaging—and in 2014, we were first in the United States to successfully implant the world’s smallest leadless cardiac pacemaker. We also excel in heart disease prevention through efforts such as childhood obesity awareness, heart health screenings for families, nutrition classes, and clinical trials.
For all these reasons, NYU Langone ranks No. 5 in the nation’s cardiology and heart surgery programs according to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” rankings.
