The Heart Institute

The Heart Institute at Bridgeport Hospital What do you call a heart center where the most up-to-date cardiac procedures and open-heart surgeries are performed? Where nationally and internationally recognized physicians provide state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical care? Where important research and clinical tests are conducted to advance our knowledge of the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart disease? Where the list of cardiac "firsts" goes back two decades, thanks to outstanding physicians and staff?

You call it by a new name: "The Heart Institute at Bridgeport Hospital."

The Heart Institute: At the Forefront of Heart Care
Since the 1980s, Bridgeport Hospital has been the site of many regional and statewide "firsts" in cardiac care.

We take pride in these achievements because they demonstrate the expertise of our physicians, and enable us to provide better care: faster diagnoses, more comfortable procedures with fewer side effects, shorter recovery times, and better long-term results. And we at the Heart Institute will not rest on past laurels. Instead, we will stay on the forefront of cardiovascular expertise, continuing to offer the newest and best in cardiac care to our community.
