The Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center, which celebrated its opening this past February 1st, will continue the tradition of excellence which the New York Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center is world renown for. Rated as one of the ten best hospitals in the country by “U.S. News and World Report” and the best in New York, NY Presbyterian will add three of only eleven cutting-edge Zeego 3-D circular X-ray machines found in the United States to its already excellent inventory of equipment. These machines will offer improved, non-invasive evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of heart problems and other related ailments.
Connie Milstein represented the Milstein Family at the inaugural ceremony held on January 20th. Her family donated $50 million of the $260 million spent to create and appoint this amazing new facility.
Dr. Herbert Pardes, the CEO and president of the New York Presbyterian Hospital explained at the opening ceremony the importance of and hope for the new Milstein Family Heart Center:
“As we open the doors to the Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center, we look at the future of heart care, with advanced inpatient and outpatient care, including new minimally invasive treatment options, available together under one roof. This building honors the longstanding vision and support of the Vivian and Seymour Milstein family and signals a unique hospital setting where heart patients have access to the very best care, delivered with compassion in a comfortable and family-friendly environment.”
