Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Appointments are available for new and existing patients. See below for more information.

Cardiologists at Jefferson are at the forefront of advancing the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and vascular disease. Named a Top Hospital for Heart by Philadelphia magazine, we treat a variety of cardiovascular disorders including coronary heart disease, heart failure, arrhythmia, heart valve disease, heart muscle disease, heart defects and peripheral vascular disease. We provide a combination of personalized care, renowned expertise and advanced treatments.

A cardiologist is a physician who specializes in the treatment of heart disease. Jefferson cardiologists treat some of the most complex and malignant cases of heart and vascular disease, which are often referred or transferred from other hospitals in the region. We also place an emphasis on early diagnosis, lowering the risk of recurrent disease and preventing the onset of disease for those at risk.

During COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak

We are still scheduling appointments for new and existing patients; however, we have made several temporary adjustments to how we deliver care to reduce your risk and ensure safety. Adjustments we’ve made include:

  • Video/Telehealth visits
    These visits allow you to use a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) or desktop computer with a camera to speak with your provider through a video connection.
  • Expanded In-person appointments
    We added early-morning and evening appointments for those with medical conditions that make them more susceptible to illness. Additionally, we created appropriate space between chairs in waiting areas and ensure that all patients and care team members have masks and appropriate protection.
  • Increased Safety Measures
    Learn some of the necessary steps we’ve taken to ensure that all of our patients and healthcare providers are safe at all of our locations.

Learn more about initiating a video visit by speaking with your physician’s office or by visiting our telehealth services page.

Cardiology Consultants of Philadelphia Joins Jefferson Health

Cardiology network

Jefferson Health proudly announces the Center City Division of Cardiology Consultants of Philadelphia (CCP) has joined the Jefferson Health family. CCP at Jefferson adds 17 highly-skilled Center City-based cardiologists to our already exceptional group of specialists. This collaboration represents yet another major step forward in growing and advancing Jefferson Health's cardiovascular services and providing patients greater access to care at locations most convenient to them.

About the Jefferson Heart Institute

The primary mission of the Jefferson Heart Institute is to provide exemplary comprehensive medical and surgical care to the patient needing cardiovascular care. At the Jefferson Heart Institute, we emphasize the prevention and management of cardiovascular disorders, as well as advancing the use of innovative noninvasive approaches to treating patients without open-heart surgery.

We offer patients with heart disorders the broadest and most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment options in the Delaware Valley. In fact, Jefferson was one of the first heart centers in the U.S. to implant stents to open blocked arteries and to use drug-eluting stents to prevent re-obstruction of coronary vessels after stenting.

We are the only hospital in the Philadelphia region — and one of only a handful in the nation — to offer the Philips Brilliance iCT 256-slice scanner. This advanced technology allows us to image arteries and the heart with never-before-seen clarity and details in order to make accurate diagnoses of coronary heart disease.

Patients have access to an array of cardiac treatment options, including medication, dietary adjustments, exercise, angioplasty, ablation and heart surgery. Our physicians have helped pioneer the use of minimally invasive procedures that enable a growing number of patients to avoid open-heart surgery. This translates into less patient discomfort, fewer medications and earlier discharges from the Hospital.
