Heart & Vascular Care during COVID-19
Listen to a recent town hall featuring a team of experts discussing heart health during the pandemic.
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.
Jefferson Health cardiologists also paired with our experts in OBGYN to establish a Cardio- Obstetrics Clinic. At this clinic, our teams support the needs of pregnant patients (and those trying to conceive) with hypertension and/or heart disease. During an appointment, patients may receive screenings, cardiac imaging, referrals and much more.

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.
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.
