Our specially trained team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) team, cardiac nurse practitioner, cardiac rehabilitation therapists and cardiac nurses care for patients who may need temporary circulatory support after surgery, or those who need permanent heart function support.
