Mount Sinai Health System’s globally acclaimed cardiologist Valentín Fuster, MD, PhD, has been named President of Mount Sinai Heart, a newly created position, effective Sunday, January 1, 2023. He will relinquish the title of Director as he transitions from day-to-day administrative leadership of Mount Sinai Heart into the new advisory position. Dr. Fuster will continue in his roles as Physician-in-Chief of The Mount Sinai Hospital and as the Richard Gorlin, MD/Heart Research Foundation Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. After dedicating the last 28 years to building one of the world’s leading cardiovascular centers, Dr. Fuster will continue to advance the clinical care, research, and innovative training at Mount Sinai Heart.
“Valentín Fuster has been the world’s leading cardiologist for decades, and as hyperbolic as that may seem, it is the reality. We have been blessed with his presence,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, Chief Executive Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System.
