Cardiovascular Treatments & Services
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.
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.
After treatment is completed, Crozer-Keystone provides rehabilitation and ongoing care to help heart patients get well and stay well. Our cardiac rehabilitation program, which is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, consists of monitored exercise sessions, cardiac risk factor modification, education and counseling.
Cardiac rehabilitation services are offered at Springfield Hospital. To enter cardiac rehabilitation, patients need a physician referral.
