Physicians and patients alike benefit from the integrative and collaborative approach to cardiovascular care taken by cardiologists at Heart Care Centre. Our team comprises specialists in virtually every aspect of modern cardiology, including the management of all forms of heart disease, their predisposing risk factors, and their complications.
Patient care is multidisciplinary as well. Cardiologists work with physicians and researchers from other divisions and departments as part of multidisciplinary teams to evaluate patients and perform complex procedures. We believe that the collaborative, multidisciplinary approach promotes excellence in patient care.
The partial hospitalization unit monitors, stabilizes, and treats heart failure patients in a day clinic that interacts with all of the department's diagnostic and treatment units to avoid full hospital admission.
Patients can rest assured that their conditions will be thoroughly diagnosed. Typical evaluations include electrocardiogram (ECG) testing, blood tests, echocardiography for evaluation of heart and valve functioning, and, if needed, cardiac mapping to assess the electrical activity of the heart.
The Division of Cardiology provides ongoing monitoring and active rehabilitation therapy for recovering patients. Heart disease prevention services offer patients instruction, direction and training on preventing heart disease and avoiding recurrences of heart incidents.
Patients benefit from access to some of the most advanced therapies available, including conventional and investigational medications, interventional procedures, and implantable devices.
