Mittals' Generous Gift to Support Electrophysiology Services at New Hospital
“We made a gift to the campaign as a sign of our commitment to all patients receiving care at Valley and to the new hospital project,” explains Suneet Mittal, M.D., Director of Valley’s Electrophysiology Program and Associate Chair of Cardiology.
Since joining Valley in 2011, Dr. Mittal has been an integral member of cardiovascular services, conducting world-class clinical research and pioneering innovative treatments and procedures with colleagues: “Throughout my career at Valley, I have been fortunate to work alongside some of the most dedicated, accomplished, and considerate clinicians while spearheading cutting-edge initiatives,” he says, reflecting on the last 12 years in Ridgewood.
This has included establishing the Snyder Center for Comprehensive Atrial Fibrillation in 2015, where Dr. Mittal works with the region’s leading team of doctors specializing in treating heart rhythm abnormalities. There his accomplishments have included launching AI–related initiatives like Deep6 AI, which uses sophisticated machine learning to screen electronic medical records to identify patients who may be best suited for either clinical or research-based interventions.
“We have a robust cardiovascular program at Valley that is known for its depth of experience and multidisciplinary team approach to care,” Dr. Mittal says. “What the new facility in Paramus allows us to do is take advantage of that team-based care and provide an even better experience for our patients and families.” Having toured the site recently with his colleagues, he was amazed. “What I saw that day is something that is well equipped to carry us for decades going forward. Just the size and scope of the new hospital will allow us to head into 2030 and beyond without any restrictions.”
Suneet and his wife, Deepti, have chosen to direct their campaign gift to support electrophysiology services at the new hospital and have offered to match gifts from grateful patients and supporters up to $100,000. They hope that their contribution along with that of others will help the electrophysiology program continue to achieve its stated mission “to deliver evidence-based, patient-centered, team-directed healthcare.”
