Choosing BayCare is Standard Procedure
If you need a heart procedure, making an appointment with BayCare is standard procedure. BayCare hospitals are selected most often for people who need heart care in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties.*
Since the heart is such a vital and complex organ, doctors specialize in different areas related to the heart. At BayCare, we’re leaders in treating heart disease, complex heart rhythm disorders, advanced structural heart and valve conditions and heart failure.
If your doctor refers you or a loved one to a heart doctor, it is easy to be overwhelmed by all the different cardiac specialties. If your doctor suspects a heart condition, they will typically refer you to a cardiologist. A cardiologist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of heart disease.
So if your doctor suspects a heart condition, don’t wait. When it comes to your heart, time is of the essence. Even during these times. To protect you from COVID-19, we’ve put enhanced safety measures in place at all our facilities.
