Northwest Regional Heart & Vascular at Adventist Health Portland

Outstanding cardiovascular care requires more than just a visit and a procedure. That’s because you’re more than just a symptom or condition. You deserve whole-person care that brings compassion, expertise and experience to your body, mind and spirit. 


From aneurysm repair and valve replacement to bypass surgery and surgical ablation for heart rhythm disorders, our surgical team uses today’s most advanced techniques — least-invasive catheter-based procedures and minimally invasive, robotically assisted cardiac surgery — with an exceptional track record of outstanding results.
