We're 100% devoted to hearts—and it shows

The Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital has been recognized for having some of the best heart surgery outcomes in New York state—seven times in a row. It's exceptional cardiac care that comes with experience. Because caring for hearts is all we do. 


The Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital at North Shore University Hospital, conveniently located at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, is a premier destination for cardiac care. Led by a nationally renowned team, the Heart Hospital is home to one of New York’s largest and most successful cardiac programs. From minimally invasive procedures to the most complex heart transplants, we’re advancing medicine—and changing lives for the better all in one location.

That's because of a multidisciplinary team of renowned physicians, registered nurses and advanced care providers with extensive knowledge and training. Our cardiac surgeons have over 240 years of combined surgical experience—so it's no wonder we’re continually recognized by third party organizations for having the best outcomes in various cardiac procedures.

Every patient at our hospital benefits from state-of-the-art technology for the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of cardiac issues. This advanced technology includes catheterization and electrophysiology labs, hybrid operating rooms, and minimally invasive and robotic surgery. But our cardiac care is more than just advanced—it's personalized for every unique heart. We are here to offer individualized treatment plans for many conditions, including coronary disease, valve disease, irregular heart rhythms and advanced heart failure.

The exceptional care offered at the Heart Hospital is accentuated by hotel-like amenities for a five-star patient experience. That's because safety and comfort are our top priorities—for patients and the ones they love.
