Northside Hospital - Heart & Vascular Institute


Heart & Vascular Institute

Cardiology and vascular care go hand in hand when it comes to maintaining cardiovascular health, but they also have important differences. Cardiologists diagnose and treat heart disorders like congenital heart defects, coronary artery blockages and heart failure, whereas vascular surgeons diagnose and treat diseases of the veins and arteries throughout the body.

For Georgians at risk for heart disease, the Northside Hospital Heart and Vascular Institute’s board-certified cardiologists and vascular surgeons, working alongside cardiovascular trained nurses and technologists, have the highest level of expertise in diagnosing and treating these conditions.

COVID-19 Screening Process for Patients Scheduled for Surgery

In an effort to protect you, your family, our healthcare workers and the community, Northside Hospital will now require a screening test for COVID-19 three days / 72 hours before your scheduled cardiology procedure.

Screening will be available at one of our drive-thru testing sites Monday – Friday: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. located close to each of our hospitals. Please go to the testing site designated for the facility where your procedure will take place.
