Comprehensive Care, Teamwork, Applied Research
A unique resource in the province, the St. Paul’s Heart Centre provides complete care for British Columbians with all kinds of heart disease. The services at St. Paul’s include heart disease prevention and reversal, a variety of diagnostic services and of course, a full spectrum of treatment and care, including surgery, transplants and rehabilitation. The Heart Centre’s health professionals work as a team, sharing information and forming care plans tailored to each patient. In addition, the Heart Centre’s home is in a large general hospital that offers the support of a critical care department and emergency services. Thanks to the concentration of cardiac professionals – and their participation in world-class research – the Heart Centre has achieved many “firsts” in the treatment of heart disease, and is the only centre in the province to provide a number of complex procedures.
Working in affiliation with the cardiac programs at Vancouver General Hospital, Children’s and Women’s Health Centre of British Columbia, within Vancouver Coastal Health, the St. Paul’s Heart Centre is a resource for all British Columbians.
