About the Heart Hospital

Dedicated to the Care of Heart and Vascular Patients

Located on the campus of Deaconess Gateway Hospital, The Heart Hospital is adjacent to the Emergency Department and the offices of The Heart Group.  The cooperative effort with Deaconess and area cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons is formally The Heart Hospital at Deaconess Gateway LLC, more commonly known as The Heart Hospital.

The Heart Hospital is the only acute care heart hospital in the region dedicated to the treatment of heart and vascular care.  A compassionate, caring staff, and exceptionally talented physicians provide the kind of care that leads to successful outcomes and satisfied patients. The Heart Hospital is a regional leader in heart services by combining an experienced staff with state-of-the-art technology and the latest diagnostic and treatment services. From the most complicated open heart surgical cases, and advanced treatment of rhythm conditions to the rapid treatment of heart attacks, the physicians and staff are committed to providing an excellent patient care experience.

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.
