Our Approach

The Cardiovascular Centers of CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System strive to maintain or restore an optimum level of heart health for patients seeking procedural or surgical intervention.

CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital - Medical Center is an accredited Certified Chest Pain Centers with PCI designation from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. Since more than five million Americans visit hospitals each year with chest pain, Chest Pain Center accreditation ensures a Hospital meets or exceeds quality-of-care measures based on improving the process for the care of the patient with acute coronary syndrome. The care of the patient starts from the onset of the patient's symptoms, and calls for multi-departmental collaboration among emergency dispatch services, emergency medical services, emergency department and catheterization lab, observation unit, and cardiac rehab. Within this model, facilities can plan and organize the delivery of care in a systematic manner, which is then evaluated by surveyors.

The program provides state-of-the-art technology with a focus on early detection of heart disease to help patients enjoy longer, healthier lives. The Cath Labs offer the optimum environment to physicians in meeting emergency, preventive, and restorative cardiac needs of patients.

Our cardiac specialists perform diagnostic coronary and peripheral angiography, as well as coronary and peripheral interventional procedures, to include angioplasty, atherectomy, and stent placement. We also offer comprehensive open heart surgery care. Highly skilled staff members provide complete heart care before and after a procedure or surgery. We offer diagnostic digital angiography, advanced interventional cardiovascular services, and diagnostic studies for patients with cardiac arrhythmias, implantation of cardiac devices, and advanced diagnostic and interventional care in peripheral vascular disease.
