Heart Care Services
Athens Regional Medical Center is one of the few hospitals in Georgia - and the only in our 17-county service area - that offers comprehensive cardiac and vascular services, including emergency angioplasty and open heart surgery.
Our cardiac and vascular programs date back to the 1960s, when administrators at Athens General laid the groundwork for the first Coronary Care Unit in Georgia.
Today, the Athens Regional Cardiac Vascular Center offers advanced heart care with outstanding outcomes for even highly complex cases.
Nationally Recognized Heart Care
Over the past 15 years, we have consistently been in the top rankings of all hospitals in the United States in terms of outcomes, and twice we have been recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals in heart care.
In addition, our Vascular Lab is the only ICAVL-accredited facility in greater Athens.
From our experienced nurses to the progressive collaboration among our cardiologists, vascular surgeons and heart surgeons, we provide a full spectrum of diagnostic, interventional and surgical services.
