For the second year in a row, Catholic Health’s St. Francis Hospital &Heart Center® (Roslyn, NY) has been awarded HeartCARE Center™ designation by The American College of Cardiology (ACC). St. Francis retains the only ACC HeartCARE™ Center designation in the region (including the five boroughs of New York City, Long Island and Westchester), and is one of only two HeartCARE Centers™ in the state.

First launched in 2018, the designation is awarded by the ACC to hospitals who have achieved several ACC accreditations and participate in the National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) program. The award recognizes and showcases the caliber of care delivered at St. Francis Hospital.

St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center® received the HeartCARE Center™ National Distinction of Excellence based on meeting accreditation criteria, and through their ongoing performance registry reporting. St. Francis Hospital is the only hospital on Long Island with ACC Cardiac Catheterization Lab accreditation and the only ACC certified TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) program on Long Island. Additionally, St. Francis Hospital is the only hospital in Nassau County to have ACC accreditation as a Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention).

Hospitals and health systems that have earned an ACC HeartCARE Center™ designation have met a set of criteria, including participating in at least two ACC Accreditation Services programs, with a focus on improving safety and patient experience.  

“For the second year in a row, the HeartCARE Center™ designation from the ACC demonstrates our commitment to consistent, high-quality cardiovascular care,” said Dr. Charles Lucore, President, St. Francis Hospital and Heart Center. “We are honored to be recognized by the American College of Cardiology, and continue to strive to ensure that we provide the highest level of care to our patients.”

The HeartCARE Center™ distinction is the latest of many St. Francis Hospital is proud to achieve, including a 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, its 22nd Leapfrog “A” score (the most for any hospital in New York state), and being ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top hospitals in the country (2023–24) and #6 for all of New York State and the Metro Area.
