Cardiac Care

Cardiac surgery 
During Alert Level 2, cardiac surgeries return to full operational capacity. Patients who are being scheduled for surgery will be contacted regarding booking their procedures. 
Affected elective surgeries will be rebooked and individuals will be contacted by Eastern Health.   
We realize that patients’ health situations can change over time and that the routine procedures that some patients are awaiting may become emergent and/or urgent as we manage through COVID-19. If you have concerns about your health, please contact your doctor or nurse practitioner for an appointment or call the 811 NL Health Line. 
Cardiac catheterizations
Cardiac catheterizations will return to full operations with an increased focus seeing patients who have been refereed by physicians. 
Following the unprecedented changes of the COVID-19 pandemic, our clinical team continues to review and prioritize all critical cardiac catheterization patients. 
Cardiac Rehabilitation Program
Cardiac rehabilitation patients will be contacted by the program coordinator with any changes to their program plan.
