Mission Health | Services and Treatments | Heart Care
For more than 40 years, Mission Heart has been a regional leader in cardiothoracic surgery and heart care. Committed to high quality and superior outcomes, our award-winning team maintains years of specialized clinical experience, and is dedicated to caring for patients with skill and compassion. Our physician teams with Asheville Cardiology Associates and Asheville Heart deliver a team-oriented approach to patient heart issues, with a high level of technical expertise.
In 2014, Mission Heart was one of only eight Cardiac Surgery Programs in the nation to receive the Society of Thoracic Surgeons' (STS) highest ranking (three stars) for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), Aortic Valve Replacement (AVR) and AVR/CABG combined surgery. In 2015, Mission's cardiothoracic program received an additional STS three-star rating for pulmonary resections - making Mission Heart one of the very few programs in the nation to achieve three-stars in all four rated STS database categories. At the end of 2015, Mission Heart was once again recognized with the highest STS ratings in all four categories.
Hear why surgeons, nursing staff, patient navigators and Advanced Cardiac Care Clinic personnel choose to work with Mission Heart, ranked as a Top 50 Heart Center in America.
Over the past 10 years our physicians have performed in excess of 50,000 coronary angiograms as well as more than 20,000 cardiac and thoracic surgeries since the program was founded over 30 years ago. This breadth of experience has led to outstanding survival rates for our 18,000 annual heart patients, soaring beyond the national average.
