Who we are
At the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital at North Shore University Hospital, we put our hearts into delivering the best cardiac care, and others agree. We're proud to achieve the nation’s highest overall quality rating in cardiac surgery by Society of Thoracic Surgeons—a peer-reviewed rating system that’s one of the most respected measures of quality in health care. And that just touches the surface of what we can accomplish.
Our surgeons have the experience and expertise necessary to perform a wide variety of surgical procedures, from minimally invasive surgery to heart transplantation. Their areas of surgical expertise include structural heart disease, heart valve repair and replacement, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), aortic aneurysms and dissections.
In addition to delivering the best care, we are also committed to providing access to exclusive clinical trials, developing groundbreaking treatments and leading the way in medical research that can change the future of cardiac care.
