What Inspires You?
Staffed by board-certified physicians and highly skilled nurses and technicians, the Heart and Vascular Institute provides the highest level of cardiac care in south Orange County.
From our cardiac surgery program to our comprehensive cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program, we’re devoted to providing excellent patient care through diagnosis, treatment, research, education and prevention.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) ProgramProvidence Mission Heart and Vascular Institute has further developed our Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) Program for the treatment of severe narrowing of the heart valves, which reduces blood flow to vital organs. TAVR is less invasive, allowing our patients to return to their normal activities more quickly with less discomfort.
Designated Cardiac and Stroke Receiving CenterThis designation assures our patients that Mission Hospital has a highly skilled cardiac response team ready to treat heart attack patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. Mission is also a designated Stroke-Neurology Receiving Center, and the only hospital in south Orange County providing advanced neurologic care for stroke.
Muldoon Cardiac CenterThe highly advanced Muldoon Cardiac Center houses our state-of-the-art Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) and Cardiac Telemetry Units. All 27 private rooms in our CICU offer spacious, comfortable settings, promoting relaxation which aids in recovery. Our 34-bed Cardiac Telemetry Unit, provides personalized care for patients in stable condition, recovering from a cardiac condition or procedure.
Ewing Heart Rhythm CenterEstablished by Sandra and Thomas Ewing, the Ewing Hart Rhythm Center is home to the first Electrophysiology Laboratory in south Orange County specializing in identification and treatment of heart rhythm disturbances.
A donation makes a difference. Here’s proof.
Because of generous donor support of the cardiac catheterization lab, this was the third time this innovative transhepatic WATCHMAN FLX approach was ever performed in the world. Our patient did extremely well post-procedure, as he was walking around his hospital room within a few hours and was discharged home the next day by lunchtime.
A Second Chance at Life
Back in 2020, Larry Watkins was enjoying an active life. He and Millie, his wife of 40 years, spent their time skiing, boating and playing tennis. When he ruptured a quadricep after tumbling down a flight of stairs, the procedure to repair his tendon went smoothly.
The addition of four next-generation cardiac cath labs will provide optimal visualization, yield less radiation exposure and expand patient capacity. With this access, our team of specialized cardiac experts can diagnose and treat blockages and other problems in the arteries, often without invasive surgery.
