New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center is proud to announce the new Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center.

The completion of the $260 million dollar environmentally friendly cardiac center in Washington Heights was celebrated Wednesday morning January 20th.

Seymore Milstein was involved with New York-Presbyterian for 12 years, including seven years as the chairman of the board. The Milestein family donated $50 million for the facility, the largest gift the hospital has ever received. The ceremony was attended by daughter Connie and son Philip.

“This building signals a unique hospital setting where heart patients have access to the very best care,” said Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

The six-story, 142,000-square-foot center includes two intensive care units, one critical care unit, two cath labs as well as 20 new cardiac ICU beds for highest-risk patients.

Furthermore, of only 11 Zeegos in the country, New York Presbyterian’s facility has three. The Zeego is an innovative piece of technology that creates three-dimensional, circular x-rays that provide a clearer picture of the internal implications of patients. Zeego allows doctors to perform less invasive cardiac, vascular and neurological surgeries.

New York-Presbyterian cardiology and cardiac surgery program consistently ranks first in New York and top 10 in the country. The facility’s doors will open to patients on February 1.
