Our Approach

Our heart center greets each and every day with the same goal – to ensure that we provide our patients with the highest quality, life-saving heart care to restore their quality of life as quickly and safely as possible – and we achieve this by staying at the forefront of healthcare in the region:

  • Our Thermo suit technology administers hypothermia to cardiac arrest patients, decreasing the risk of brain damage and lowering core body temperature to the necessary range.
  • We provide 24-hour support for our patients in critical condition.
  • In addition to our outstanding surgeons, nurses and technicians, we also have a cardiac surgery anesthesiologist as part of our team to ensure that the best possible care is given to patients undergoing procedures in our heart center.
  • We have a cardiac unit dedicated solely to patients recovering from coronary artery bypass surgery.
  • Our care doesn’t end when you walk out of our doors – we’re here to support patients and their families throughout the healing process with opportunities like our Congestive Heart Failure Support Group to make certain that encouragement and education continue even after a procedure or diagnosis.
