Four Vital Cardiac Services Under One Roof

Our heart is in our community. That’s why we provide all the vital cardiology services under one roof. We are the only community hospital in the region to establish in-house cardiac catheterization, cardiology, arrhythmia, and interventional radiology programs.

If you are looking for a cardiologist, please call 781-338-7171 or visit our doctor finder.

Heart Attack Care

When you are having a heart attack, we have door-to-balloon times 30% lower (quicker) than the national average. That means once we identify that you are having a heart attack we are performing a life-saving procedure to open blocked arteries sooner than most. The quicker you receive care the less damage and stress on your heart.

Treating Heart Disease

Dr. Laurence Conway speaks about how family history can affect you and his approach to treating heart disease.

Women and Heart Attacks

Women often have different heart attack symptoms from men. Do you know what to watch out for? Dr. Ann Garlitski, an electrophysiologist at MelroseWakefield Cardiovascular Center and Tufts Medical Center explains the difference in an article called “Women and Heart Attacks.”
