Cardiovascular Services

Cardiovascular Surgery

Elmhurst Memorial Hospital's cardiac surgery team performs more than 250 peripheral vascular surgeries and more than 200 open heart surgeries each year — that's 30 to 40 percent of our overall cardiovascular procedures.

As one of the largest cardiovascular programs in the area, we were among the first to bring advanced clinical management protocols and minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment tools to DuPage County.

Count on our commitment to providing leading-edge cardiovascular care in a community setting.
