About

The Western Maryland Regional Medical Center’s Heart Institute offers comprehensive invasive and non-invasive services.  In the event of an emergency, procedures including Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization, Angioplasty and Open Heart Surgery are available on site.  To insure that we are providing safe, quality care, we monitor and benchmark data related to our patients’ outcomes with nationally recognized organizations.

Our expert cardiac surgeon, Dr. Mark Nelson, as well as our many cardiologists, ensure that our patients receive the highest level of care.

Our Cardiovascular Unit specializes in open-heart surgery, as well as cardio-thoracic and
cardiovascular post-surgical care.

Our new 10 bed Cardiovascular Unit (CVU) was designed with the patient in mind and provides a calming and soothing healing environment for patients who are recovering from cardiac surgery.

Additionally, our long-tenured and experienced staff is dedicated to helping provide the most comfortable and rapidly healing environment for all of our patients.
