Heart Services

Providence Saint John’s heart specialists use the most current techniques, such as cardiac catheterization, angiography, electrophysiology studies and cardiac imaging, for diagnosing cardiovascular conditions with impressive precision and accuracy. We are on the leading-edge of research and clinical trials that improve cardiac care, such as The Watchman® device for patients with atrial fibrillation seeking to reduce the risk of stroke.

We install the latest technologies that improve patient care, such as the Reliant Hemodynamic Monitoring System that tracks how much blood the heart pumps with each heartbeat, critical information for high risk patients, data which is sent your physician and nurses continuously throughout your treatment.

The Providence Saint John’s team of heart specialists performs a comprehensive evaluation of your condition before recommending a medical, interventional or surgical treatment. Your treatment is individually tailored to your needs, preferences and lifestyle resulting in fewer complications, faster recovery and improved long-term outcomes.
