Tacoma General Heart Hospital
Expanding Heart Care at Tacoma General
Home to the highest level of cardiovascular care available in the region, the new Tacoma General Heart Hospital clusters all our cardiac and vascular services in one location, providing patients with better connected care.
Services available at the heart hospital include cardiac and vascular operating suites, digital cardiac catheterization labs, brand new cardiovascular intensive care and coronary care units, and a chest pain cardiovascular short stay unit.
The new patient rooms in the cardiovascular intensive care and coronary care units are designed to enhance wellness, recovery, safety and efficiency. The rooms are much larger than the typical patient room, accommodating friends and family—even providing space for a sleeper sofa, so loved ones can stay overnight. Large windows provide the rooms with natural light, as well as clear views of the surrounding Pacific Northwest scenery. Natural light has been has been shown in studies to aid in healing and recovery.
The Tacoma General Heart Hospital also houses all cardiac diagnostic, rehabilitation and prevention programs, including a heart failure clinic.
