The Cardiac Center of Choice in the Greater San Jose Area
Good Samaritan Hospital's Cardiac and Vascular Institute treats more heart patients than any community hospital in Santa Clara County—making Good Samaritan the cardiac center of choice in the greater San Jose area. For nearly four decades, we have provided the full range of diagnostic and treatment options for all areas of cardiac and vascular care. Furthermore, as medical technology improves each year, so do we. We are committed to incorporating the latest cardiac techniques and treatments so that our friends and neighbors in the South Bay continue to receive the very best in cardiac care.
Good Samaritan Hospital is one of the first five hospitals in the country to become an Accredited Chest Pain Center and is also a Santa Clara County designated STEMI Receiving center. As a STEMI Receiving Center, Good Samaritan Hospital specializes in receiving STEMI heart attack cases. STEMI stands for ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction, which is a severe heart attack that is caused by clotting or complete blockage of one or more arteries.
At Good Samaritan Hospital, our many clinical departments collaborate closely to deliver the highest standard of cardiovascular care in the Santa Clara Valley. This hospital-wide commitment to excellence has been recognized both locally and nationally; recently, our Cardiac Catheterization Lab was honored by our parent company as one of the "Top Ten Peak Performers" in the 180-hospital HCA system, and our highly esteemed Cardiac Surgery Department continues to be one of the busiest in the Bay Area.
Good Samaritan's cardiac center provides the full spectrum of specialty heart care—from infants to seniors. Excellent coordination of care among diagnostic, outpatient, inpatient, and cardiac rehabilitation services provides our patients with comprehensive cardiovascular services and ensures a full continuum of care.
