We deliver high-quality, low-cost care, as well as provide access to a wide range of cardiovascular services. It's that simple. That’s why our patient outcomes have been acknowledged more than any other provider in our region.
Advanced technology and treatments, leading expert providers and the latest research all come together at the heart institute. What this means is that you and your loved ones can expect a level of care similar to what you'll find at a much larger health care system or university research hospital.
There have been a lot of claims about quality heart care. But when it’s your heart, claims really don’t matter. Results do. And our results show we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk.
Here are some of the accolades that speak to the quality of care you’ll receive:
The heart institute brings the strength of highly skilled, board-certified cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons to Wellmont Health System's hospitals and community cardiac offices across the Tri-Cities area, as well as Clinch Valley Medical Center, Laughlin Memorial Hospital and Takoma Regional Hospital.
At the heart institute, you'll find leading-edge cardiovascular technology and treatments you'd have to drive out of the area to find otherwise, including the innovative transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedure.
Every heart institute cardiologist and surgeon is certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties in at least one area, and many have additional training and experience in cardiology subspecialties.
To ensure patients have access to the latest advancements in care, we're involved in numerous research opportunities. Out of 200 sites selected to participate in Abbott's Absorb trial, for example, the heart institute is the top enroller in the country.
