The Most Advanced Care in the Region for Treating Chest Pain and Heart Attacks
The Heart Hospital at St. Joseph's Hospital is the first in the region to earn Chest Pain Center Accreditation with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. This accreditation shows our commitment to getting the fastest and best treatment to chest pain and heart attack patients.
Robotic Surgery and Minimally Invasive Procedures
The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System allows cardiothoracic surgeons at The Heart Hospital to now remove cancerous tumors with smaller incisions. In addition, the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure allows these specialized surgeons to also use minimally invasive techniques for aortic stenosis. These minimally invasive options significantly reduce pain and bleeding and increase the speed of recovery time.

Nursing Excellence with International Recognition
St. Joseph’s/Candler has received our third international Magnet status, the highest level of recognition that can be accomplished for nursing excellence. Only 31 healthcare facilities in the world have earned three designations. St. Joseph’s/Candler takes pride in the expert credentialing of the nursing staff and especially the cardiovascular credentialed long-standing experience of our nursing staff at The Heart Hospital.
Research shows that nurses at Magnet designated hospitals have better patient care due to the many years of experience, professional development, additional education and service specific credentialing in a positive and supportive environment.
