MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute
The MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute at Long Beach Medical Center offers the latest in advanced technologies, nationally recognized physicians and innovative treatments to provide the complete continuum of cardiovascular care.
Our best practice treatments, research and support programs are delivered with the latest technology in dedicated catheterization laboratories and operating rooms configured to fulfill the unique requirements of cardiovascular medicine.
Our care team diagnoses cardiovascular disease using the most advanced, non-invasive, and minimally invasive approaches. We use the latest in cardiovascular imaging equipment to provide a high-quality, integrated approach.
We offer the least invasive ways to care for complex cardiovascular issues through a minimally invasive first approach with catheters or tiny incisions. Utilizing the least invasive surgical techniques and specialized equipment, our cardiovascular surgeons perform the same lifesaving procedures while avoiding traditional open-heart surgery allowing patients to get back to their lives quicker by saving healthy tissue, reducing scarring and bleeding, and accelerating recovery time.
Cardiothoracic surgeons at Long Beach Medical Center use the da Vinci® Xi™ - the latest robotic-assisted surgical system on the market – to provide additional minimally invasive treatment options. The da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System gives surgeons a 3D visualization of the operating field with more precision and better optics. The surgical instruments give surgeons more freedom of movement, giving physicians access to hard-to-reach spots.
Through cutting-edge cardiac research, many of the newest and best treatment opportunities and technologies are available for our patients. By providing medications, devices, and therapies to the community – long before they become available elsewhere – makes our MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute a recognized leader in innovative, quality cardiac care.
We participate in the most scientifically sound protocols in cardiovascular research and is dedicated to offering qualified patients the latest treatment options available through innovation in medications, devices, and procedures.
Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is designed to help those with heart conditions recover, as well as resume, develop, and/or maintain an active, heart-healthy lifestyle. Patients have access to nutritional counseling, structured exercise, risk factor modification, and educational opportunities.

An electrocardiogram, better known as an EKG, is a noninvasive diagnostic test that uses electrodes to record the electrical activity of the heart while active and at rest. It can assist in diagnosing a number of heart conditions, including problems with heart size (cardiomyopathy or hypertrophy) and abnormal heart rhythms.
An electrophysiology (EP) study is a test that records the electrical activity and the electrical pathways of your heart. This test is done to help determine the cause of a heart rhythm disturbance and used to provide possible treatment options. This procedure is done in a cardiac catheterization lab.
