State-of-the-Art Cardiac Services

Your Assurance Of Quality Before, During And After Heart Surgery

Our surgical and nursing teams have special training in cardiovascular care. We continually gather data on how well our heart surgery patients do, so that we can compare our performance to hospitals across the nation. You will be glad to know that our success rate is above the national average.

Diagnosis And Treatment

Your care at the Heart Center at Rideout begins when your cardiologist refers you to one of our surgeons. Depending on your diagnosis FRHG’s Cardiac Surgery and Coronary Intervention Program will offer several options for the treatment of heart disease, including angioplasty, rotational atherectomy and open-heart surgery. The program provides the latest technology and expert surgeons, close to your home and family.
