When you have a heart problem, you want to work with an experienced, compassionate team of heart specialists. With the longest history of diagnosing and treating cardiovascular conditions in Delaware County, Crozer-Keystone Health System hospitals offer you the expert care you need to manage your health and live fully.

Our cardiovascular services include:

Diagnostic Testing

Crozer-Keystone makes it easier to get a cardiac imaging test with four locations throughout Delaware County, including the newly renovated electrophysiology lab at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. Each site offers the same standard of high-level care that has become a hallmark of our cardiac program.

Conditions & Treatment

For decades, Crozer-Keystone has led the way for cardiac care in Delaware County. From diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation, the Crozer-Keystone Heart Team is dedicated to helping patients restore their heart health. We provide surgical and interventional treatment options for a variety of heart and vascular issues, including:

Cardiothoracic Surgery

When lifestyle changes and medication are not enough, our cardiac specialists offers many leading-edge treatments to restore blood flow to the heart muscle — including cardiothoracic or open heart surgery — for patients with life-threatening heart disease.

Interventional Cardiology

For certain heart conditions, interventional cardiology may present a lower risk alternative to invasive surgical procedures. With the help of x-ray guidance, doctors can access the heart by inserting catheters and wires through arteries in the wrist to fix a variety of issues, from blockages in coronary arteries to holes in the heart wall.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation is a structured, monitored program that aims to increase physical fitness and strengthen the heart’s tolerance for exercise. For those patients who have suffered a heart attack or are recovering from heart surgery.

Cardiac Emergency Care

Crozer-Keystone surgeons perform emergency and scheduled repairs of life-threatening conditions of the aorta. These dangerous conditions include an area of the aorta that has stretched and weakened (aneurysm) or torn.

Primary Angioplasty is an emergency procedure to open blocked arteries in a heart attack patient. Crozer-Keystone offers clot-busting (thrombolytic) drugs as well as primary angioplasty for heart attack patients.
