The concentration of medical facilities in the MetroWest region offers patients and their caregivers plenty of options for specialized cardiac care.
The MetroWest Medical Center offers a number of cardiac services, including a cardiac catheterization lab, cardiac care unit, cardiac rehabilitation program and cardiac wellness program. In addition, the Heart Center of MetroWest, which has locations in Framingham, Natick, Marlborough and Medway, has joined in a clinical partnership with the Tufts Medical Center’s CardioVascular Center.
Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s Cardiovascular Health Center offers a cardiac rehabilitation program, nutrition counseling and a congestive heart failure clinic. Marlborough Hospital offers comprehensive services for heart and vascular conditions and is affiliated with UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, while Milford Regional Medical Center offers an interdisciplinary approach to heart health with services including diagnostics, cardiovascular treatment, cardiac rehabilitation and prevention.
Some of the top national facilities are not far from MetroWest either. Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston was ranked fifth nationally in cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News and World Report in 2013, with Massachusetts General Hospital close behind at No. 7.
