What separates an exceptional heart hospital from merely a good one? Outstanding facilities? Cutting edge technology? A highly experienced clinical heart team? The answer is all of the above. All of these qualities are vital to exceptional cardiac care. At the Heart Hospital at Providence, you can count on renowned facilities, the very latest technology, and a superior team of heart professionals. But that is just the beginning of the Providence story. Since Providence Hospital first opened its doors in 1905, Central Texans have turned to us for a level of compassion and caring they can believe in. Generations of patients have entrusted their health to Providence and that's why we founded The Heart Hospital at Providence, a "hospital within a hospital," more than 30 years ago. Today, Central Texans refer to Providence as simply "THE Heart Hospital." We're proud of this distinction and proud to say we've earned it with a history of firsts in heart health care including an award-winning, experienced team of professional, a 24-hour Chest Pain ER, proven commitment to superior technology, and national recognition for excellence.
