Heart & Lung
The Heart Centre at St. Paul’s Hospital is BC’s most comprehensive referral centre for patients with heart disease, providing leading programs in cardiac diagnostics, coronary intervention, heart surgery and electrophysiology. We are the only centre in BC that performs heart transplants for adults. Our Healthy Heart Program is an innovative wellness program for people at risk for heart attack and stroke, and for those who have suffered a heart attack or recently undergone heart surgery.
As lung disease experts we excel at treatment and research of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) as well as cystic fibrosis and many other chronic lung conditions. Research at the Centre for Heart Lung Innovation, the PROOF Centre of Excellence in the Prevention of Organ Failure and the Institute for Heart + Lung Health has been pivotal to driving the successful treatment and surgical programs at St. Paul’s.
