Care Philosophy

The Cardiac Surgery Program at MountainView Hospital is focused on maximizing continuity of care by providing an individualized, unique patient experience. As a primary care physician, you know your patients better than anyone else. Therefore, it is our mission to involve you in their inpatient care at every step along the way. From the Operating Room to the dedicated Cardiac ICU and Progressive Care Unit (PCU), our cardiac nurses are specially trained and have successfully completed a rigorous course that includes several proctored cases. In addition, we offer increased staffing in both the Cardiac ICU and PCU.
