Suburban Hospital's specialized center for cardiac care, anchored by the NIH Heart Center, brings the clinical and scientific excellence of the world's most renowned biomedical research organization — the National Institutes of Health — with a community-based cardiac program conveniently located in the heart of Bethesda, Md. Through collaboration with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, Suburban Hospital provides patients easy access to advanced cardiovascular treatments available in very few medical centers.
In addition to state-of-the-art cardiac surgery and angioplasty, the NIH Heart Center at Suburban Hospital provides training for the next generation of cardiac surgeons and cardiologists, and through groundbreaking research, contributes to improvements in the treatment of cardiac disease worldwide.
