Cardiothoracic Program

Our Innovations are Personal

Medical excellence means more than leading-edge technology. It means caring with compassion. We have merged an award-winning medical team with forward-thinking treatments and new medical facilities. Our cardiac surgeons and interventional cardiologists work together as a heart care team that cares for the people in our region. It’s all with one goal in mind: To help you heal.


A World-Class Program Built for You

Clinical excellence and top ratings have created the heart program we have today. We’re known for our outstanding success as the world’s first fully robotic cardiac catheterization lab, our nationally accredited chest pain center, and for having the best heart attack survival rate in Hampton Roads, according to recently published Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reports.* 

You can trust our specialized surgeons, physicians, and nurses who have years of experience in heart care and open-heart procedures. They are certified, trained experts prepared to care for patients with complex needs.


Universal Bed Model that Helps Patients

Our heart program brings cardiologists and surgeons together to discuss how best to care for patients, using a universal bed model. To promote healing and continuity of care, a patient stays in the same hospital room, from post-operation to discharge. This allows clinicians to use the highest standards and apply established evidence-based protocols to significantly improve clinical outcomes and each patient’s experience.
