Lankenau Heart Institute: sponsor of perfectly normal lives
Extraordinary cardiology care is the kind that gets you back to your normal life as fast as possible. And with a heart condition, the more normal, the better.
As one of the top-performing cardiovascular medicine and surgery programs in the country, Lankenau Heart Institute (located just outside of Philadelphia) treats patients with heart disease at every stage—sometimes even before they develop one—at all four Main Line Health hospitals, including Lankenau Medical Center, Bryn Mawr Hospital, Paoli Hospital and Riddle Hospital, along with many community cardiology sites in the Philadelphia suburbs.
Here, every day advances heart health thanks to our seamless integration of prevention, diagnostics, treatment, rehabilitation and disease management. And it’s this approach, aimed at achieving wellness over repairing sickness, that helps us deliver the real promise of heart care: helping our patients need less heart care.
There may come a day when our advanced cardiac care will save your life. We spend every other day making sure it doesn’t have to.
