About the Heart & Vascular Hospital
The Heart & Vascular Hospital began as a vision to offer patients a new kind of cardiac care-one that brings the country’s best specialists together under one roof, leverages the latest scientific data, and always puts the needs of the patient first. Every aspect of the Heart & Vascular Hospital has been planned to advance this vision. By promoting collaborative care, integrating tomorrow’s technology, improving clinical efficiency, and delivering the region’s broadest array of services as cost-effectively as possible, we believe we will continue as a leading center for cardiovascular health.
Despite increased awareness, advanced diagnostics, and revolutionary treatments, heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States and the greatest adversary of men and women over the age of 60. Hackensack University Medical Center has long been committed to the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Our programs in the interventional cardiology, cardiac surgery and stroke care have consistently placed us in the top 5% of hospitals in the nation, and earned us high marks with independent ratings agencies. Additionally, The Society of Chest Pain Center has honored the Heart & Vascular Hospital as an Accredited Chest Pain Center. And we are currently ranked within the top 50 heart hospitals in the country by U.S. News and World Report.
The new Heart & Vascular Hospital is the embodiment of our promise to always serve the needs of our community. The culmination of years of research and planning, this state-of-the–art “hospital within a hospital” brings our cardiovascular services and specialists together under one roof – enabling the kind of multidisciplinary model that is the future of cardiac care. Our physicians are able to evaluate and treat patients who have cardiovascular disease. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, prevention of heart disease can be accomplished. A healthy diet and exercise will also assist in keeping your blood pressure and cholesterol levels at a normal range.
Every detail of the Heart & Vascular Hospital has been designed to promote collaborative care, integrate tomorrow’s technology, improve clinical efficiency, and deliver the region’s broadest array of services in the most cost-effective manner possible. Our emphasis on forward-thinking research lets us continually evolve and expand our treatments, while keeping the patient experience as our guiding principle.
By driving clinical excellence in each aspect of our institution, the Heart & Vascular Hospital aims to become a world-class destination for cardiovascular care in the New Jersey region and beyond.
