Morristown Medical Center
Morristown Medical Center – The Hub of Heart Care
Home to the largest cardiac surgery program in New Jersey and ranked one of the 30 best hospitals in the nation for cardiology & heart surgery by US News & World Report, Morristown Medical Center’s Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute serves as the hub of Atlantic Health System Heart Care.
Patients from Chilton Medical Center, Hackettstown Medical Center, Newton Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center are seamlessly connected to Morristown when advanced cardiovascular care is necessary thanks to an infrastructure that includes helipads and ambulance transport and an electronic health record system that allows physicians to share health records in real time. In addition, pediatric cardiology services are available at Goryeb Children’s Hospital, located on the Morristown Medical Center campus.
Transaortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
Performing more TAVR procedures than any other hospital in the state, Morristown Medical Center is poised to continue leading innovations in valve repair for years to come.
Within our advanced cath labs, we’re able to perform transradial catheterization, which uses the wrist as a point of entry to minimize bleeding and speed recovery time. Morristown Medical Center has expanded this approach, performing 36 percent of all catheterization procedures transradially in 2017.
Women’s Heart Program
We understand that women have unique cardiovascular health needs. Our program provides gender-specific care to those with known or suspected heart disease.
Atlantic Health System Heart Care’s state-of-the-art cardiovascular imaging can find the root cause of a heart condition before it escalates into a medical emergency. We offer nuclear cardiology, echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, among other services.
Research and Clinical Trials
Atlantic Health System Heart Care participates in dozens of clinical trials each year, giving our patients access to the latest technology and medications sooner than available to the general public. Our cardiac researchers frequently present their findings from these studies at key medical meetings around the globe.
Growing Forward | Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute
As a national leader in cardiovascular care and the largest program in the state, Morristown Medical Center’s Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute tirelessly confronts the challenges posed by heart disease, but the community we serve has grown. To meet the demand, we have proposed a two floor expansion adding 72 beds. The hospital has undertaken these projects in multiple phases of construction, and even though some are complete or near completion the fundraising continues.
