Northwell Health Joins the Cardiometabolic Center Alliance as a Charter Member
The Cardiometabolic Center Alliance (CMCA), founded by Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute, is honored to announce the addition of Northwell Health as a charter member.
As a coalition that seeks to establish Cardiometabolic Centers of Excellence nationwide aimed at transforming the treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D), and related cardiovascular (CV) and renal comorbidities, the CMCA considers Northwell — a 22-hospital health system with multiple advanced centers focused on cardiometabolic health — to be a key member of the Alliance.
“The mission of the CMCA is to transform cardiometabolic care and improve quality and outcomes for patients, regardless of where they live,” said Mikhail Kosiborod, MD, Executive Director of the Cardiometabolic Center Alliance. “We are proud to partner with Northwell Health, one of the largest healthcare providers in the northeast, in our joint efforts to bring comprehensive, team-based cardiometabolic care to the many patients they serve.”
“In the past several years, our team at Northwell Health has put forth numerous initiatives related to education around cardiometabolic health aimed at improving patient outcomes,” said Eugenia Gianos, MD, Director of Cardiovascular Prevention at Northwell Health and Professor of Cardiology at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell. “In an effort to take our practices to the next level of standardization and comprehensive care, we are excited to collaborate with the Cardiometabolic Center Alliance on patient outcomes and quality by becoming a charter member.”
