Heart Services at Virginia Hospital Center
You understand much more today than ever before about how your body works: the functions of the brain, the function of the lungs, the action of the muscles.
But you feel with your heart. No other organ seems so intimately connected with who and what you are.
So when you need cardiac care - or if you want advice and guidance on preventing cardiovascular disease - you should be sure that you're getting the very best. After all, you are trusting someone with your heart. Trust your heart to Virginia Hospital Center.
A Trusted Leader In Cardiac Care
Virginia Hospital Center pioneered the specialized treatment of heart disease in our area, establishing the first coronary care unit in the area-and the third in the entire nation-in 1964.
One of the area's first cardiac rehabilitation programs began at Virginia Hospital Center more than 20 years ago to help patients not only recover from heart disease, but also to achieve optimum health. The Hospital's cardiovascular services, led by physicians trained at the country's leading cardiac care institutions, consistently exceed national benchmark standards for patient outcomes and satisfaction.
These physicians and surgeons participate in ongoing research into the causes, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease. Virginia Hospital Center has invested in cutting-edge technology for diagnosis and treatment of virtually every adult cardiovascular disease or disorder. And in repeated third-party surveys, Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery patients give outstanding ratings to both the medical and surgical treatment and the compassionate care they receive from nurses, physicians and other caregivers.
