Heart and Vascular Institute

The surgeons and cardiologists at Sequoia Hospital’s Heart and Vascular Institute treat some of the most complex cardiac cases in California.

Sequoia Hospital + Cleveland Clinic

New Cardiac Affiliation. World-Class Heart Care.

Sequoia’s Heart and Vascular Institute is affiliated with the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute, ranked No. 1 in the nation for heart care since 1995 by U.S. News & World Report. 

With this affiliation – the first of its kind in Northern California – we’re building on our respective records of excellence and bringing the future of cardiac care to those we serve. Most importantly it means our patients benefit from an exceptional and unmatched level of heart and vascular care.
