good for your heart; Bon Secours Cardiac Care

your heart is in good hands.

Many of Virginia's top physicians have chosen to call Bon Secours home, and we're proud of the work they do every day. With world-class physicians and top-notch technology right here in Hampton Roads, your heart is in very good hands. Bon Secours Maryview is also home to one of only four open heart programs in Hampton Roads. Over the years, Bon Secours doctors and surgical team members have introduced breakthrough techniques to patients in Hampton Roads, including the "off pump" heart surgeries, and a new, innovative treatment for irregular heart beat.

As a team, cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons at Bon Secours Heart & Vascular Institute at Maryview Medical Center cover each facet of the heart. They focus on irregular heart beats, valvular heart disease, and other heart conditions. This specialization ultimately gives patients more personalized treatment and better outcomes.

In addition to the new Heart Institute, Bon Secours Maryview has a new progressive Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, an Advanced Cardiac Care Unit, telemetry technology, cardiac and vascular diagnostic services, two cardiac cath labs and an electrophysiology lab. They’re all part of Bon Secours Health System's commitment to expanding the continuum of heart and vascular care.

As part of its commitment to expansion, the clinical team from the Bon Secours Heart & Vascular Institute began operating a state of the art, fully digital cardiac catheterization laboratory at Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center. DePaul Medical Center's Heart & Lung Institute benefits from this expansion as the surgeons of Bon Secours Cardiovascular and Thoracic Specialists bring new and innovative thoracic procedures to their patients, including minimally invasive surgeries. And at Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital cardiologists are trained in the latest procedures as well as wellness procedures and therapeutic procedures. 

Signs of a Heart Attack

Signs of a heart attack include:
