Inpatient care

Nationally recognized inpatient care

The cardiovascular care nursing units located on 3West and 4Heart at the Mercy Heart & Vascular Center provide specialized care for patients who require medical, interventional or surgical cardiovascular care.

Highly educated cardiac nurses care for patients from the immediate post-operative period until discharge. The inpatient care units for heart patients at Mercy are recognized as among the top critical care units in the U.S., according to the American Association of Critical Care Nurses.

Preparing for surgery

Our cardiovascular surgical team provides the best possible care and experience for our patients and their families. Whenever possible, patients and family meet with a cardiac nurse a few days before surgery to learn what you can expect during surgery and your time in the hospital.
