    Funded by His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the Amir of Kuwait, the 21,000 square foot Institute has the capacity to serve more than 3,000 patients annually and is the only facility focused specifically on arrhythmias in the New York City metropolitan area.

    This world-class facility is being directed by Dr. Conor Barrett, an recognized leader in arrhythmia management and ablation procedures. Throughout his career, Dr. Barrett has focused on innovative advances in the treatment of atrial fibrillation and other complex arrhythmias. The opening of the Al-Sabah Arrhythmia Institute is a perfect match to his life-long goal of improving patient care through catheter ablation and specialized techniques.

    A New Centralized Facility

    The opening of the Al-Sabah Arrhythmia Institute allowed Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai Roosevelt to consolidate all the arrhythmia service’s physical plants into one state-of-the-art facility, designed to accommodate growing patient demand, shorter waiting periods for elective procedures, and allow for unrestricted research and training opportunities.  The Institute features: 

    • A clinical outpatient center, with a waiting area and information resources.
    • Three electrophysiology laboratories for performing catheter-based procedures, device implantations, and diagnostic studies.
    • A research laboratory for conducting both clinical and basic research on arrhythmia mechanisms and treatments.
    • An education center for training advanced fellows, practicing electrophysiologists and other medical professionals.

    With an expanding emphasis on preventive and ambulatory care, the clinical outpatient center is the portal through which most patients enter the Arrhythmia Institute. Complete with a Wi-Fi enabled waiting room, reception area, nursing station and seven consultation/exam rooms, the clinical outpatient center is where all consultations with arrhythmia patients and their loved ones and data collection for clinical trials take place. 

    The Institute's mission is to provide outstanding arrhythmia care, offer physician and patient education and train tomorrow's specialists, while conducting ongoing research to clarify the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias and develop improved methods for diagnosis and treatment. With a diverse team of world-renowned physicians and researchers specializing in arrhythmias, the Institute has created an environment of intellectual collaboration and medical advancement that continues to attract and retain leaders in the field to assure excellent patient care and groundbreaking research.

    The Institute’s clinical team is dedicated to providing curative therapy for virtually all cardiac arrhythmias by using highly innovative and complex catheter techniques and improving the welfare and outcome of patients with heart disease through the use of sophisticated implantable devices.  The Institute is also equipped with the leading edge Stereotaxis Robotic Navigation.
