||Leading the Way in Credentialing
You will have access to a team of cardiologists, a specialised nursing team and support staff who are committed to you achieving the best possible outcome. We work hard to attract and retain the best staff for your care.
The standard of the Eastern Heart Clinic credentialing of Cardiologists is excellent. We carefully review applicants’ skill and experience prior to delineating exactly which procedures, if any, they are able to perform in our facility after comparison to the current guidelines from the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand.
Innovators in Research and Clinical Trials
Patients benefit from our position as a respected cardiology innovator and our location and close association with a major tertiary hospital. The Cardiac Surgical team is on hand in the rare event they are needed and for consultation with those patients who are unsuitable for Angioplasty.
