Our patients have been at the heart of everything we do for over 95 years. We know that putting patients first leads to the best outcomes. Your local heart care doctors meet regularly with other regional experts to discuss your case. These clinical specialty committees make sure you’re getting the best treatment, so you don’t have to visit another doctor or specialist yourself. 

We also provide patients with a wide range of support services that extend beyond conventional treatment. Our offerings include everything from prevention and education to nutrition, pain management and spiritual care. We take care of your heart and all that it beats for.

We understand that the impact of heart disease is greater in some communities. Genetics plays a part, but unequal access to great health care is also a factor. At Providence, we make sure each of our patients has access to the best heart care. As part of this commitment, we offer translation services and print publications in multiple languages for our non-English-speaking patients. In keeping with our Mission, Providence offers financial assistance programs that provide free and low-cost care to those who are eligible.

We also prioritize community heart-health awareness through local events and outreach. One example is our Health Equity Hypertension partnership with the American Heart Association.

We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, spiritual, gender and sexual identities of each member of our diverse community. We aim to treat every patient equally and with dignity – whoever you are, and wherever you are in your journey.

Providence Heart & Vascular Institute of Los Angeles is at the forefront of cardiovascular treatment and therapies. One of our hospitals was the first of two in the world to enroll patients in a clinical trial for a novel stroke prevention device. We were also the first in the nation to complete a commercial implant of WATCHMAN. Both the clinical trial and the WATCHMAN device help reduce the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation.

As our patient, you can take part in one of our many clinical trials. These include FDA-regulated trials to develop new cardiovascular therapies. Providence also participates in national cardiovascular data registries to continually improve outcomes and patient care.

Our cardiologists are experts in the most advanced therapeutic and surgical techniques. They take a team-based approach to your heart care, working with some of the best surgeons, heart specialists and nurse navigators in the region. Our team uses minimally invasive procedures whenever possible to improve outcomes and reduce recovery times.
