HCA East Florida's comprehensive cardiovascular team has earned a national reputation for excellence. When your heart is at stake, few hospitals can offer more advanced technology, more experienced heart care specialists and a greater range of support services to effectively diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease. Experience and uncompromising patient care are built into the following services at the cardiac hospitals in HCA East Florida Division.


We offer the area's most advanced, noninvasive diagnostic tests for accurately assessing your heart condition. These procedures—available to both inpatients and outpatients—include electrocardiography, Holter monitoring, echocardiography and stress tests.

Heart Catheterization

Our medical professionals can detect even the smallest heart irregularity using a full range of comprehensive diagnostic tests and interventional procedures performed with leading-edge technology. Diagnostics are often followed immediately by advanced treatments such as angioplasty and stent implantation.

Cardiac Electrophysiology

Here, a highly skilled team of physicians specializing in internal medicine, cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology treats heartbeat irregularities—from simple to complex—with the most sophisticated tools available today.

Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation

Even just 10 years ago, in order to do this type of surgery, where you try to actually eliminate abnormal parts of the heart that are causing the arrhythmia, in order to do it, you had to open the chest, find those parts, and actually cut them out with a scalpel. Now, all this can be done minimally invasively with just a couple small punctures in the patient's groin with the catheter which you can move and control rather precisely in a three dimensional place.

Cardiothoracic Surgery

A team of cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons brings its extensive range of skills to bear on a wide range of open-heart procedures for the treatment of cardiovascular disease. These include coronary artery bypass surgery, on- and off-pump valve replacement and repair, aortic dissection repair and a growing number of minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac nurse practitioners and certified exercise physiologists will guide you through a carefully-designed and monitored regimen of exercise along with dietary and lifestyle education.
