Maimonides Health Opens Advanced Cardiac Suite in Midwood

Renowned heart and vascular institute now accessible to more patients in Brooklyn

The Maimonides Midwood Community Hospital’s new advanced cardiac suite is now open. The program is being overseen by renowned Maimonides Health cardiac interventionists Dr. Jacob Shani, Chair, Cardiology and Dr. Robert Frankel, Director, Interventional Cardiology, providing expertise to patients and the Brooklyn community.

“We are pleased to be able to keep high-quality and compassionate cardiovascular care close to home for those we serve. This is a really exciting time for our hospital, our community, and the patients we serve. Every minute counts when a patient has a heart attack, and now procedures that might have been performed at hospitals farther away can be done right here in Midwood," said Diana Immel, RN, Vice President, Perioperative Services, Maimonides Midwood Community Hospital. "This truly signals the beginning of a new century of healthcare for our community. The new Cardiac Suite demonstrates our commitment to investing in our hospital to enhance services and meet the needs of our growing community for generation to come.

The new cardiac facilities feature cutting-edge equipment and a full spectrum of emergency and preventative cardiac services, including a state-of-the-art Cardiac Catheterization Lab, a Combination Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) & Electrophysiology Studies (EP) Lab, 128 Slice CT Scan with Cardiac Package, Nuclear and Echocardiogram Stress Testing Lab, peripheral vascular intervention and vascular procedures, Cardiac Sonography Office, and Cardiac Physician offices. For more complex conditions, and for patients in need of urgent cardiothoracic surgery, rapid, simplified transfer to the Heart & Vascular Institute at Maimonides Medical Center is available.

“Along with expanded cardiac services, we recently upgraded our MRI technology, and we offer a full suite of radiology services. These advances are an investment in our community’s health,” said Barry Stern, CEO of Maimonides Midwood Community Hospital. “We are laser-focused on continuing to bring the most advanced technology, combined with a dedicated team of cardiologists, nurses, and support staff, to serve patients dealing with even the most complex conditions in a caring environment.”
