Recognized as one of the nation's leading cardiovascular programs, West Penn Allegheny Health System's Cardiovascular Institute provides pioneering therapies and services to patients with complex cardiovascular diseases and conditions. Through our cutting-edge clinical, research and educational programs, we are committed to giving heart patients new hope for an improved quality of life.
The Cardiovascular Institute blends pathways of care into one streamlined method for more effectively combating cardiac and vascular diseases. We believe this model of care leads to better outcomes for our patients. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, technicians and support staff work together to deliver a coordinated spectrum of surgical, clinical, diagnostic and educational services, geared to the unique needs of each patient.
We provide advanced teritary care at Allegheny General Hospital and Forbes Regional Hospital, as well as outpatient services at West Penn Allegheny Health System's community hospitals. To maximize patient comfort and convenience, we also offer office consultations and cardiac imaging services at a wide array of community-based offices. Our clinicians work closely with each patient's primary care physician to ensure a seamless continuum of care.
At the Cardiovascular Institute, we treat each patient as if they were a member of our own family. Our compassionate staff help ease the concerns of our patients and their families--allowing them to focus their attention on the healing process.
