Heart & Vascular Care

Caring for Your Heart

A healthy heart is a big part of what keeps you moving every day. MetroWest Medical Center is dedicated to providing advanced, comprehensive heart and vascular care. Our cardiac care program is recognized by the American Heart Association as a leader in coronary artery disease and heart failure treatments. Our cardiac team is composed of experienced, board-certified cardiologists and cardiac surgeons who are highly skilled in many innovative surgical procedures and have an impressive record of outstanding cardiac surgical outcomes.

MetroWest Medical Center offers a specialized Telemetry Unit that complement our 12-bed Intensive Cardiac Care Unit. Telemetry is a sophisticated, noninvasive method to monitor the heart’s rhythm and electrical activity. The Telemetry Unit provides 24-hour monitoring of the heart’s activity to help identify changes and possible cardiac events.

Our Framingham location is the only hospital between Boston and Worcester with a fully equipped cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology lab. This means that we are able to provide immediate emergency care for patients experiencing a heart attack by assessing extent and location of blockages in heart arteries and opening the blockage in the vessel causing the heart attack and restoring normal blood flow.  Our cardiac catheterization lab has recently received the American Heart Association ​Gold Plus award for STEMI care, meaning that our highly trained medical team consistently opens blocked arteries in heart attack patients in under 90 minutes, which is the gold standard for care.

At MetroWest Medical Center, you have access to a variety of cardiovascular treatment options, including coronary angioplasty, stenting, and permanent pacemaker placement.
