Specialized Critical Care
When you or a loved one suffers from a potentially life-threatening condition such as coronary artery disease (CAD) which can result in a heart attack, it is critical to seek the expertise and advice of specialists. The heart specialists on staff at Regional Heart & Vascular Institute at West Hills Hospital are trained to manage intricate cardiovascular procedures and have leading-edge technology at their fingertips in a caring and compassionate environment.
Chest Pain Receiving Center Care
At West Hills Hospital's Regional Heart & Vascular Institute, we have earned accreditation from the Society of Chest Pain Centers for sustaining superior levels of service for patients experiencing a cardiac episode. This official designation in Los Angeles County means we are ready 24/7 to provide specialized emergency cardiac care.
Official STEMI Receiving Center
The County also recognizes West Hills Hospital for a critical type of heart attack known as ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction or STEMI.
We offer a full array of cardiac services that are comparable to any found in an academic hospital environment. Our electrophysiology team is expert in device placement procedures, with remote monitoring capabilities in some cases.
Our Regional Heart & Vascular Institute makes it possible to have electronic physiology performed for irregular heart beat problems without the use of fluoroscopy. That's because our specially-trained electro physiologists use advanced technology that allows them to precisely see the problem location on a 3-D computer model of the heart. This can be extremely helpful in correcting irregular heart rhythms.
We also perform open heart surgery in addition to providing excellent outpatient diagnostic and imaging services.
Cardiac care and cardiac rehab may include doctors (your family doctor, a cardiologist, and/or a surgeon), nurses, rehabilitation and exercise specialists, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians, and psychologists or other behavioral therapists. West Hills Hospital connects you with the professionals essential to your care, healing and well-being.
