The New York Cardiological Society was founded by one of the first heart specialists in the United States, Dr. Louis F. Bishop, and chartered in 1928. It is the oldest organization of cardiovascular scientists in the United States. In 1996 it merged with the New York State Chapter, American College of Cardiology.
