Grand Opening of Cayuga Heart Institute!



Cayuga Medical Center announced today the opening of the Cayuga Heart Institute.  The new center offers comprehensive cardiac services in one location, making it more convenient for patients.  Cayuga Medical Center will be hosting an official opening to the cardiac center on March 10th at 5 PM on the 3rd floor above the lobby. 


Cayuga Medical Center’s new addition makes it a leading cardiac center in Central New York.  Cayuga’s new facility includes a 24-hour cardiologist, a bigger staff, and more innovative equipment.  “With our new waiting room, better equipment, and more services offered, the hospital can now better treat individual patients,” said Sandra Fuller, director of cardiac services at Cayuga Medical Center. 


Cayuga Medical Center is one of ten hospitals in New York State to achieve such accreditation.  Cayuga Medical Center was certified by the Society of Chest Pain Centers in 2009 to be an accredited chest pain center.  The hospital uses the chest pain center to define the protocol and steps for patient care.  All patients at Cayuga Medical Center have access to the chest pain center. 


Patients at Cayuga Medical Center with severe cardiac conditions are forwarded to the Rochester Heart Institute (RHI), one of the most highly-rated and busiest cardiac centers in the country.  RHI cardiologists provide direct consultation and complex cardiac surgery.  RHI staff provides Cayuga Medical Center with direct consultation, quality review, and protocols. 


The Cayuga Center for Healthy Living (CCHL) is a department at Cayuga Medical Center that offers advice to patients about heart-healthy lifestyle alternatives.  Patients as well as walk-in appointments are encouraged to visit CCHL in an effort to promote awareness of healthy lifestyles. 


Cayuga Medical Center is a 204-bed, state-of-the art regional medical center and is affiliated with many prestigious health care organizations including Cornell University’s Weill Medical College in New York City, Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY,  the Rochester Heart Institute at Rochester General Hospital in Rochester, NY, and Mayo Medical Laboratories.
