Interventional Cardiology

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 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. Annually, Johnson City Medical Center performs more heart care procedures than the next two regional hospitals combined, and our new surgery tower provides a structural heart procedure room with the newest technology.
