We've all had to mend a broken heart, but some hearts require a little extra help. Heart disease has become the leading cause of death in the United States, affecting one third of American adults - or 800,000 men and women - and claiming a life every 37 seconds.
Nevertheless, there is tremendous hope and promise as medical advances offer more possibilities than ever before for detecting, treating and even preventing disorders. Chilton Hospital is leading the fight with a growing continuum of premier heart services. Anchored by a new, state-of-the-art Cardiovascular Interventional Lab, our program delivers a broad array of diagnostic and therapeutic options that represent the latest innovations in heart, vascular and stroke care - from life-saving angioplasty to a breakthrough intervention that literally puts a heart that's stopped beating on ice. Furthermore, Chilton treats each patient with an unparalleled level of compassionate, personalized and expedient care that begins the moment of arrival and continues all the way through recovery.
Our Heart and Vascular Care boasts many distinguishing features, including:
- A full complement of emergency, diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation services, allowing many heart patients to receive all of their care in one hospital - without stressful transfers to other facilities.
- A skilled team of board certified cardiologists, vascular surgeons, an interventional radiologist, registered nurses and technologists specially trained in heart and vascular care.
- A newly expanded Cardiovascular Interventional Lab, enhancing patient comfort and capabilities for heart, peripheral vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures.
- Award-winning stroke and critical care: Chilton's Primary Stroke Center and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) are ranked among the top ten hospitals in New Jersey for stroke services by HealthGrades, 2010. In addition, the ICU is one of only 16 New Jersey hospitals to receive the prestigious Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence.
