World-class interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery programs

Our interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery programs were developed through our deep collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital. NSMC and Massachusetts General Hospital cardiologists work side by side at the NSMC Heart Center to provide the highest level of care for our patients, enabling patients to remain close to home and family.

Our nurses, clinical assistants, administrators and support staff provide patients with compassionate, professional clinical care throughout their treatment.
