NYU Lutheran Medical Center’s May Ellen and Gerald Ritter Cardiology Center is partnered with NYU Lutheran Medical Center to provide extended cardiac care, equipment, training, clinical support, on-call physician access and administrative services to the catheterization laboratory on-site at NYU Lutheran.
NYU Langone Medical Center is recognized as a leader in cardiovascular care not only in New York city, but in the world. They strive to take minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment approaches whenever possible, helping their patients receive the best care available while maintaining an optimal quality of life. The result: less pain, quicker recovery, and a more rapid return to normal activities.
We offer non-invasive testing such as nuclear and stress testing, as well as a fully monitored inpatient telemetry unit and an inpatient coronary care unit. NYU Lutheran is particularly qualified to treat STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction), heart attacks, the most severe form of cardiac arrest with a team of board-certified cardiologists on-call, 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week standing ready to respond to all cardiac emergencies. Emergency angioplasty is available to patients within 90 minutes of arrival, to quickly restore blood flow to the heart muscle minimizing further damage.
NYU Lutheran's board-certified, multidisciplinary Cardiology Team includes cardiologists, electrophysiologists and a staff of other specialists who collaborate on the screening, diagnosis, treatment and management of arrhythmias and other heart conditions.
