Heart attacks can happen to anyone at any time. French Hospital Medical Center is here to help you and your loved ones with a team of cardiac specialists who continually work to improve our care, shorten treatment times and increase overall education.


When A Heart Attack Happens, Every Minute Counts

When it comes to treating someone who has suffered a heart attack, nothing is more important than access to expert care. Scientific studies have shown that survival rates depend on rapid diagnosis and equally rapid treatment to open a closed artery. In medical terms, this is called “door to balloon time,” or D2B. The American College of Cardiology states that less than 90 minutes is key. At French Hospital, we’re consistently below 90 minutes. 

Heart Disease Specialists

We’ve been helping and healing hearts since 1981. We’re currently home to San Luis Obispo County’s leading heart care specialists. Our Emergency Staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have the technology needed to accurately – and quickly – diagnose and treat your heart disease. 

French Hospital Medical Center opened the Copeland, Forbes and Rossi Cardiac Care Center in 2007. Our team includes:

  • Cardiac Surgeons
  • Cardiologists
  • Cardiothoracic Surgeons
  • Electrophysiologists
  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • Interventional Radiologists
  • Vascular Surgeons

To date, we have performed more than 5000 open-heart procedures and 19,000 cardiac catheterization procedures.

Our skilled nurses and other specially trained health care professionals all specialize in one thing: Helping you recover from a heart attack or heart disease.
