Experienced, Board-Certified Heart Specialists
Weiss Memorial Hospital’s cardiac program is making new strides every day in its goal to provide you with advanced cardiac care. Weiss’ cardiac team is composed of experienced, board-certified cardiologists and cardiac surgeons in Chicago who are highly skilled in many innovative surgical procedures and have an impressive record of outstanding cardiac surgical outcomes.
Weiss offers specialized Telemetry Units that complement our 16-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 Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory facilitates more effective angioplasty methods for heart attacks and provides 24-hour emergency service.
Services and Treatment Options
At Weiss, you have access to a variety of cardiovascular treatment options, including coronary angioplasty, stenting, permanent pacemaker and AICD placement and bi-ventricular devices. Approximately 50% of all coronary angiograms are done as outpatient procedures. Weiss interventional cardiologists use closure devices that make it possible to move around two to three hours afterward.
Weiss has been granted an additional three-year term of accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Echocardiography in the areas of Adult Transthoracic, Adult Transesophageal and Adult Stress.
This latest accreditation awarded to Weiss demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care in echocardiography.
