About the Heart Institute
Finding excellent, comprehensive, patient-focused heart care can be challenging in today's healthcare environment. At MedStar Union Memorial, our entire staff is committed to providing cutting-edge care without sacrificing patient care.
While we think there are many reasons you should choose us, we feel that these four areas separate us and make us Baltimore's best choice for cardiac care:
Perhaps the major deciding factor for patients is the experience of the doctor. You should also know that the practice of the support staff is also critical. At MedStar Union Memorial Heart Institute, 58% of our nurses have at least 10 years of experience. They only work on our cardiac floor, so their expertise is dedicated solely to heart patients. Our operating room staff is also very practiced, and other senior members of the team train each member.
Quality and Outcomes
U.S.News & World Report, Consumer Reports and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons rank us as among the best in the nation and in the state of Maryland. All of our heart physicians are board certified and strictly follow the guidelines of the American Heart Association. Practicing medicine based on the latest research speaks directly to our successful outcomes, as well as the quality all of our patients' experience.
We are so proud of the reviews we consistently get from our patients. The entire staff is committed to making your heart care experience here with us comfortable. As a community-based hospital, our main goal is connecting to our patients, for their present health concerns, as well as their long-term health goals.
The Heart Institute is set up to manage every kind of heart problem. That means our staff communicates with each other on a regular basis and plan as a team how to treat patients. In practical terms, this means if you come to see us with one problem, but need a more serious procedure to correct it, we have all the services you need under one roof to manage everything you might need.
