Cardiology

This department treats patients with heart disease. Our cardiology unit and clinics help prevent, treat and monitor heart disease.

Our cardiology program provides speciality care to patients with heart conditions.

Our cardiology team is interdisciplinary and full service. We provide patients with support and treatment for their heart disease or condition.

We work with the Sunnybrook Schulich Heart Centre to perform PCI procedures. After the procedure at Sunnybrook, patients return to Humber River Hospital so they can recuperate closer to home.

The cardiology program’s clinics help prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease. Starting at the cardiology clinic, our diagnostic services find out how well your heart is working. We also provide treatment and monitoring services.
