The UHS Heart & Vascular Institute welcomes the specialists of the former Cardiology Associates medical group to our team. With the addition of these cardiologists, we now have more heart doctors than any other heart program in our New York region.

Many advances have been made recently in the science of cardiovascular care, thanks to expanding knowledge, better medications and new technology in the field. As a result, we’re able to do more than ever before to keep you as heart-healthy as possible.

You’ll have quick access to cardiac services to improve your health outcomes, and you’ll enjoy our team approach to care that integrates all aspects of your wellness into your heart care treatment.

UHS—The Area’s Heart Care Leader

Count on UHS to bring you the latest care and treatment for heart and vascular conditions from leading New York cardiologists, heart doctors, and cardiothoracic surgeons. And it’s something we’ve been doing since we brought the first open-heart surgery to the Greater Binghamton area.

Now, we are one of the few hospitals in the area that use the new minimally invasive transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedure. This means you may be able to get a valve replacement even if you were deemed ineligible for a traditional open-heart surgery.

You’ll also appreciate our focus on advanced diagnostic procedures for vascular conditions and our dedication to ongoing quality assurance for vascular care, evidenced by our national accreditation by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories. UHS was one of the first hospitals in the United States and Canada to get this distinction.
