Heart Center

When it is your heart, it’s only natural to seek out a hospital where cardiac care has a history of success. That just makes sense.

Why is experience so important in cardiac care?

Simply because the more experience a hospital has, the better its success rate is likely to be. You will find that experience at the Fairview Hospital Heart Center.

The interaction between our team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, nurses and technologists forms the foundation of our program. Working together on thousands of cases, these dedicated specialists have developed the kind of teamwork, communication and trust that brings exceptional judgment, extraordinary experience and outstanding outcomes to cases of any complexity.

It is this experience that sets the Fairview Heart Center apart. The history of coronary care at Fairview Hospital dates back over 40 years to when we opened one of the nation’s first dedicated Coronary Care Units.
