Standardizing Cardiovascular Care across the Region
In collaboration with Columbia University Irving Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian is committed to providing the highest quality, evidence-based, patient-centered care to all members of the diverse communities served by NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, and their affiliated physician medical groups.
Through its Regional Hospital Network, NewYork-Presbyterian’s extensive breadth of clinical services and hospital resources now extend from Northern Westchester through all of Manhattan and into Brooklyn and Queens, reaching a population of some 8.8 million people.
NewYork-Presbyterian’s commitment moves far beyond the walls of its hospitals, reaching into the very fabric of daily life in neighborhoods of virtually every cultural background, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. Indeed, this is what defines NewYork-Presbyterian — a multicultural and multiethnic organization with a proud history of caring for individuals and families who rely on top-ranked physicians and health professionals to meet their myriad physical and mental health needs.
NewYork-Presbyterian recently established the Congestive Heart Failure Network — a collaborative and innovative regional initiative focused on improving heart failure services throughout all NewYork-Presbyterian campuses and regional hospitals. The comprehensive endeavor includes the development of guidelines for implementing evidence-based standards of care for inpatients, outpatient management of heart failure, and improving transitions of care. Each hospital is reviewing clinical dashboards to guide practice improvement. In addition, the Network is instituting referral protocols, expanding patient and physician education, and increasing online resources.
