Decades of Surgical Excellence

For the past 20 years, our expert cardiac team has worked together to reimagine what’s possible with heart surgery. We are consistently among the first hospitals in the country to perform revolutionary procedures like the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) and the AngioVac Procedure, helping more people with chronic and high-risk conditions. Trust that your care is in exceptionally skilled hands. Since our founding, our cardiac team has performed more than 76,000 angioplasty procedures and 11,000 open heart surgeries.

Firsts in Tampa Bay and Beyond
