Nationally Recognized Cardiac Care

Our nationally-recognized heart and vascular program is led by Dr. Richard Shlofmitz, Catholic Health and St. Francis Hospital Chairman of Cardiology, and a dedicated and compassionate team of cardiology experts in multiple disciplines.

St. Francis Heart Center

In addition to Long Island's most awarded heart program at St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center® in Roslyn, NY, you can find excellence in heart and vascular care at St. Francis Heart Center locations across Long Island.

"They Treated Me Like a Prince"

When Roberto Valle was diagnosed in his native El Salvador with a serious heart condition, he traveled to Long Island for treatment by the renowned cardiac care team at Catholic Health. He met with Dr. David D’Agate, cardiologist at St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center®/Suffolk Heart Group, who found blockages in all of Roberto's major arteries.

Roberto had successful surgery thanks to the cardiac experts at the St. Francis Heart Center at Good Samaritan Hospital.
