Open Heart Is Here
The day is finally here! Gwinnett Medical Center is proud to announce the opening of our new 40,000-square-foot Strickland Heart Center. And it wouldn’t have been possible without the wave of community strength and support.
Our new state-of-the-art facility features the most advanced operating rooms and cardiac catheterization laboratories in the Atlanta area. It’s also home to a comprehensive array of advanced cardiovascular services, including open heart surgery.
And our cardiologists and staff have years of experience keeping hearts beating on time and in rhythm. While our facility and equipment are brand new, our staff is not. We have hand-chosen multiple cardiovascular experts from across the nation to form what we feel is one of the strongest cardiac teams in the state.
The Strickland Heart Center is our latest endeavor to improve the planned and emergency treatment of nearly every heart condition imaginable, and one more way we’re committed to transforming healthcare.
The Newest Facility—Years of Experience
From diagnosing heart disease to treating cardiovascular conditions such as cardiomyopathy, blocked arteries or arrhythmia, Gwinnett Medical Center has provided expert care for cardiovascular diseases in our community for more than 20 years.
One of the newest and most advanced programs we offer is our percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) program. This new program allows physicians to perform life-saving coronary angioplasty and stenting procedures within our cath lab. It also allows for advanced techniques for extracting blockages in patients’ blood vessels during these procedures. These advanced techniques mean faster response times to cardiac situations—and time saved is heart muscle saved.
Some of our other services and departments include:
- Cardiac Catheterization Lab—For minimally invasive surgery related to a heart attack and other heart-related problems
- Our Cardiac Wellness Center—Includes comprehensive rehabilitation facilities after a heart attack
- Cardiology Department—For the diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular conditions
- An accredited Chest Pain Center—For chest pain evaluation in an emergency situation
