E

very day, your heart beats about 100,000 times, yet that simple, life-sustaining beat goes mostly unnoticed. At Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, our Heart and Vascular Care teams pay the closest kind of attention to our members' heart health.

When the need arises, we rally to address critical needs as well as collaborate for routine testing with an emphasis on minimally-invasive procedures that reduce complications and speed healing. Because our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with some of the latest technology, our care teams have the means to perform procedures nobody else in Hawaii can.

We have been given Gold Plus recognition by the American Heart Association for commitment to quality for both stroke and heart failure care and are number two in the nation for cholesterol screening in patients with cardiovascular conditions. The standards we have set put us at the forefront of cardiovascular care in Hawaii.

Our teams are not only dedicated to working on the heart, they are dedicated to working with heart.

Part of what allows HPMG to be a leading provider of cardiac care is the depth and breadth of the ongoing research we do. Our physicians in the Cardiac Surgery, Vascular Surgery and Cardiology departments are currently participating in over 15 clinical studies and have published hundreds of peer-reviewed journal articles.

Most important, our teams are not only dedicated to working on the heart, they are dedicated to working with heart. From being the first in Hawaii to offer round-the-clock cardiac service to their patient-first approach, our cardiac team is among the most compassionate you will encounter, anywhere.

For heart care that never misses a beat, you want to be here.
