Collaborative heart care

Our team of cardiologists and other heart specialists collaborates with one another to develop and use advanced techniques and procedures. This directly contributes to our superior patient outcomes and results.

Additionally, our state-of-the-art hybrid operating room (OR) provides the amenities of a traditional OR with the capabilities of a diagnostic imaging suite. This allows different steps of a procedure to be performed at the same time, in the same room, versus needing to move the patient between procedures or scheduling separate surgeries.

Cardiac treatments and services

Our board-certified cardiothoracic surgeons are leaders in their field. Together with our other heart specialists, they offer a number of treatment options, technologies and programs to provide care for all types of heart disease.

Cardiac catheterization laboratory (cath lab)

Our cardiac cath lab is open 24 hours a day and equipped with advanced monitoring and imaging equipment. Here, we offer diagnostic and interventional tools. For example, cardiac catheterization can be used during cardiovascular surgeries. This includes angioplasty, artery stenting and other procedures that remove plaque and restore blood flow to the heart.

Cardiac rehabilitation

We offer heart rehab services to help patients heal and grow strong after a heart event or surgery. As part of that, our multidisciplinary cardiac care team includes cardiac rehabilitation therapists. They will work with you from diagnosis through recovery to restore your heart health.

Other cardiac programs

Our other cardiac care services also include a variety of technologies and programs tailored to your heart care, such as:

  • Coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG)
  • Coronary stenting
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
  • Valve replacement

Our cardiac cath lab is also close by for fast access to advanced imaging and procedures, such as angioplasty and stenting.
