Cardiovascular Services

Peter Frommer, M.D. Heart Center

Whether it’s you or someone you love, cardiovascular disease impacts all of us. From hypertension and high cholesterol to heart attack and stroke, heart disease affects approximately one in five American adults and is the number one cause of death among both men and women according to the American Heart Association.

For this reason, we established the Peter Frommer, M.D. Heart Center at Orange Regional Medical Center, to provide comprehensive cardiovascular disease treatment services to our community. We were the first hospital in Orange County, New York to offer diagnostic, emergency and elective angioplasty to the community and surrounding areas. We are very proud to feature the area’s most complete cardiovascular & heart care.

The Peter Frommer, M.D. Heart Center is affiliated with Westchester Medical Center and provides access to experienced cardiovascular specialists educated at some of the nation’s most renowned academic centers such as, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Mount Sinai Medical Center.

Additionally, our program offers state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and a knowledgeable, dedicated cardiac staff trained in the latest cardiovascular procedures. Our wide range of services include:

We also offer a mobile heart program focused on prevention and early detection of heart problems.
