The Ronald O. Perelman Heart Institute at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell opened in 2009 and is the result of a generous donation from Ronald O. Perelman. The institute focuses on state-of-the-art clinical care and patient and community outreach, including education with a particular focus on women’s heart issues. The institute is home to all heart services and physicians including cardiologists, interventionalists, and cardiothoracic surgeons.
