About The Heart Hospital:

The Heart Hospital is the region's only acute care hospital dedicated to heart and vascular care. Its unique concept of a "universal bed care model" provides a safer and more convenient hospital stay where patients receive all levels of care in one room. The Heart Hospital at Deaconess Gateway is a jointly physician ownedfacility between Deaconess Health System and area cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons of Heart Physicians LLC- both Tri-State leaders in the care and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

The Heart Hospital houses two open heart surgical suites and three cardiac cath labs. One lab is specifically dedicated to EP, or heart rhythm diagnostic and treatment procedures. Patient-care areas include a 24 bed "universal bed/acuity adaptable" heart unit where patients stay in one room during their hospitalization with the appropriate level of care brought to them. In addition, 12 cardiovascular short-stay suites are dedicated to patient stays of less than 24 hours and designed to meet the needs of patients undergoing same-day procedures. The new outpatient diagnostic center, located on the first floor, offers a comfortable environment for patients undergoing outpatient testing.
