Fortunately, heart disease is very treatable, and at White Plains Hospital, we believe our patients should receive nothing less than world-class heart care, close to home.

The foundation of your care begins with a roster of distinguished experts in their field, the latest diagnostic, interventional and surgical tools, state of the art interventional and operating room suites, and our collaborative approach to full-service cardiac care.
Non-invasive Cardiac Testing
White Plains Hospital is the only hospital in the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County to have a PET/MRI – the most advanced technology that allows our experts to detect and characterize ischemic and non-ischemic cardiac disease. In addition, the Hospital and its new Center for Advanced Medicine & Surgery (CAMS) feature the latest in non-invasive cardiology imaging and testing, including but not limited to EKG, ECHO, stress tests, Holter monitoring, CT scans and 3D Fusion Imaging, echocardiograph and more.
Under the direction of Dr. Dimitri Bliagos, White Plains Hospital offers its community numerous options for the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. Our full-service Cardiac Catheterization Labs feature best-in-class equipment to optimally meet the demand of a growing number of patients who are in need of interventional and emergency coronary angioplasty.
In addition, our world-class Electrophysiology program, led by Dr. Daniel Wang, has quickly grown to become a regional destination for care for patients with atrial fibrillation (aFib).
