Open Heart at Gwinnett Medical Center
Our state-of-the-art, 40,000-square-foot Strickland Heart Center features the most advanced operating rooms and cardiac catheterization laboratories in the Atlanta area. It’s also home to a comprehensive array of advanced cardiovascular services, including open heart surgery.
Our cardiologists and staff of hand-chosen cardiovascular experts from across the nation form what we feel is one of the strongest cardiac teams in the state. Together, they have decades of experience keeping hearts beating on time and in rhythm.
The Strickland Heart Center wouldn't have been possible without the wave of community strength and support. Not only has the Strickland Heart Center vastly improved the planned and emergency treatment of nearly every heart condition imaginable—it is a shining example of our commitment to transforming healthcare.
An Amazing Facility—Years of Experience
From diagnosing heart disease to treating cardiovascular conditions such as cardiomyopathy, blocked arteries or arrhythmia, Gwinnett Medical Center has provided expert care for cardiovascular diseases in our community for more than 20 years.
One of the most advanced programs we offer is our percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) program. This new program allows physicians to perform life-saving coronary angioplasty and stenting procedures within our cath lab. It also allows for advanced techniques for extracting blockages in patients’ blood vessels during these procedures. These advanced techniques mean faster response times to cardiac situations—and time saved is heart muscle saved.
Some of our other services and departments include:
- Cardiac Catheterization Lab—For minimally invasive surgery related to a heart attack and other heart-related problems
- Our Cardiac Wellness Center—Includes comprehensive rehabilitation facilities after a heart attack
- Cardiology Department—For the diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular conditions
- An accredited Chest Pain Center—For chest pain evaluation in an emergency situation
