Crouse Hospital has been providing high-quality interventional and diagnostic heart care services for patients of all ages for decades. We are a nationally certified Chest Pain Center — one of only 11 in New York State. In June 2011 we received full Cycle I Heart Failure Accreditation status from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care — the first hospital in New York State to achieve this designation and only one of 55 in the United States with the accreditation. Crouse is the first hospital in New York State with dual chest pain and heart failure accreditation.
The quality designations Crouse has earned mean you can be confident that we have the right skills, team, technology and equipment available day and night to stop a heart attack in its tracks. With faster diagnoses and rapid cardiac intervention, our experts can help prevent or even reverse muscle damage to your heart.
In addition, Crouse's renowned pediatric cardiac catheterization program — the only one of its kind in the region and a partnership with Pediatric Cardiology Associates — provides care for the area's smallest patients, while our rapid "door to balloon" times -- among the lowest in New York State -- is saving lives of heart attack patients of all ages.
Our cardiac quality has also been recognized nationally by the American Heart Association's "Get With the Guidelines" Silver Award for performance excellence in 2006, 2007 and 2012 and its Gold Award for outstanding performance in 2009. Crouse Hospital is also proud to be accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL), further demonstrating our strong commitment to quality cardiac care for our community.
What all this means is, quite simply: you can trust your heart to Crouse.
