Because the best heart care includes early detection, physicians from the top local cardiac specialty groups (ETSU Cardiology, Karing Hearts Cardiology, Mountain States Medical Group Cardiology, and Mountain States Medical Group CVT Surgery Group) have joined together to create the Heart Valve Center at Johnson City Medical Center.
The Johnson City Medical Center Vascular Center is proud to be the only multi-disciplinary team of expert vascular, open heart, peripheral artery and endovascular surgeons in our region. Because we are committed to the very best in patient care, our specialists routinely perform the latest in surgical procedures. Our evidence-based vascular services include innovative approaches such as minimally invasive procedures, in additional to traditional methods. This ensures you are treated with the safest, most effective treatments, and with the shortest possible recovery times.
Each year, over 500,000 Americans experience STEMI, the deadliest form of heart attack, or cardiac arrest. The Heart Hospital at Johnson City Medical Center provides percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) capability. This procedure opens blocked arteries and restores blood flow to the heart – a treatment that minimizes damage to the heart and can make the difference in life and death. We offer 24/7 percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). According to the American Heart Association, STEMI patients who receive PCI within 90 minutes of first medical contact, have better outcomes.
Also, as the regional cardiovascular and thoracic surgery referral center, Johnson City Medical Center provides round-the-clock services in vascular surgery and open heart surgery. Johnson City Medical Center consistently ranks as the region’s top facility for heart care. And our new surgery tower provides a structural heart procedure room with the newest technology.
