Sequoia Hospital ranks among the nation’s leading providers of cardiovascular 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.
According to the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, Sequoia has one of the highest heart valve replacement survival rates in the nation, and the cardiac surgeons have performed more than 4,000 minimally invasive operations, which may help reduce hospital stay and shorten recovery times.
