The Centre for Heart Lung Innovation at St. Paul’s is recognized around the world for pulmonary disease research; while the provincial Heart Centre at St. Paul’s is BC’s referral centre for those who are at-risk or have the most complex cardiac cases. In addition, St. Paul’s is the only hospital in BC to perform adult heart transplants, holds expertise in all forms of heart disease; and is home to the innovative Healthy Heart Program. This program helps patients by promoting cardiac health through education, diet, exercise and stress management and other day-to-day life issues that they themselves can help to control. The Heart Centre is also a leader in cardiac obstetrics, heart rhythm services and heart valve procedures.
