Sandy – as she is affectionately known – has changed millions of lives by supporting cardiac care at Northwell Health. She has long been a pioneer of cardiac innovation in the health system and has continuously demonstrated her commitment to enhancing the patient experience.
Early on, Sandy felt she could make the largest impact by supporting cardiology. Some of her earliest backing was to the Arrhythmia Pacemaker Center at North Shore University Hospital in the 1990s. She then generously funded the Sandra Atlas Bass Cardiology Centers at both North Shore and Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and funded the installation of a state-of-the-art CT scanner.
