Stamford Hospital is a recognized center of excellence in heart care. The Heart & Vascular Institute provides cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, non-invasive and interventional medical cardiology, integrative cardiology, interventional radiology, and rehabilitation services.

The Heart & Vascular Institute has been relocated to a new, 27,000-square-foot, single-care environment. New facilities include two cardiac catheterization labs, one of which is a hybrid room with the capability of EP, vascular and TAVR procedures, and a dedicated electrophysiology study lab.

Beyond building infrastructure to accommodate current and future technologies, the consolidation of the Hospital’s cardiac care services brings them into closer proximity to other critical services, such as emergency care and trauma—facilitating diagnosis and treatment.

At the Heart & Vascular Institute, the Planetree philosophy of patient-centered care is deeply woven into the entire spectrum of our services, from prevention and screening to the most innovative treatments in cardiology and cardiovascular surgery. Our team of highly qualified heart specialists works closely with your primary care physician to determine the best approach to your care.

Our dedicated wing in Stamford Health’s new patient care tower houses all of the Heart & Vascular Institute services in one location to facilitate continual communication among our specialties and enhance convenience for you and your family. Blended together, you receive superb cardiac care that rivals those of major academic research centers.

These programs measure the level of care provided to heart patients at Stamford Health.
