Committed to Improving Lives

The Norma and Evert Person Heart & Vascular Institute at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital is the most experienced resource for comprehensive, high quality cardiac care in Northern California. For decades, we have been committed to helping our neighbors with heart disease lead longer, healthier, more productive lives.

Our highly skilled team of cardiologists, surgeons, registered nurses and other health care professionals combines the latest advances in cardiovascular medicine with personalized, compassionate care. We provide the expert, patient-focused care you need, precisely where you need it most ~ close to home.

Comprehensive, Advanced Cardiac Care

We offer a continuum of care that focuses on education and prevention, sophisticated diagnostic and treatment interventions, and complete cardiac rehabilitation services. Our team focuses on keeping patients healthy and strives to recognize potential heart problems before they require emergency care.

Should you or a loved one experience signs of heart attack or stroke, our Emergency Department's cardiac life support team is available 24/7 to provide specialized life-sustaining treatment. Our highly trained physicians and cardiac surgeons are skilled in advanced technologies ranging from non-invasive diagnostic tests to complex bypass procedures.

Experienced, Highly Qualified Team

When it comes to ensuring that you are placing your heart - and your life - in the most qualified and capable hands, there is no substitute for experience. Our cardiac team includes triple board certified cardiologists and surgeons, as well as specially trained technicians and cardiac nurses. As the area's leading heart center, we treat more patients with cardiovascular disease than any other facility in Coastal Northern California.

Our doctors and nurses treated nearly 2,000 cardiac patients last year, and performed more than 13,000 cardiac outpatient procedures. Such high volume and specialized training gives our cardiac team a level of expertise that is unparalleled in the region.

Pioneering New Therapies in Heart Care

For more than 40 years, the Heart Institute has remained on the forefront of new advances in cardiovascular medicine. Our cardiologists use state-of-the-art technology to identify heart disease earlier and more accurately than ever before. They also participate in clinical trials, often providing eligible patients with early access to proven new therapies.

Among our many pioneering achievements, we established the region's first:

Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory - Thousands of lives have been saved in this state-of-the-art laboratory, where cardiologists can successfully unblock more arteries than ever before, thanks to advances in balloon angioplasty and vascular stenting.

Open Heart Surgery Program - Our cardiac surgeons are skilled at coronary artery bypass, and valve repair and replacement surgeries for seriously ill patients.

Electrophysiology Laboratory - The most advanced facility north of the Golden Gate for the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disturbances such as atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure.
