It's no surprise that the best cardiologists choose to practice at Edward Heart Hospital. The best doctors choose the region's most preferred hospital, and five times more patients in this area prefer Edward for the diagnosis and treatment of their heart conditions.
Because Edward is not a teaching hospital, all our cardiologists are attending physicians, which means they've already completed their residency and you'll be cared for by a specialist with experience. Cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons on the Edward medical staff have trained at some of the smartest medical centers around, including Mayo Clinic and Loyola University Medical Center.
The heart and the soul
While the cardiologists are prominent, the nursing staff keeps the Heart Hospital ticking, caring for patients and their families around the clock. We staff more nurses per shift and have more nursing stations per floor than most other hospitals. Edward was the first hospital in DuPage and Will counties to receive the Magnet award for nursing excellence, and we've recently been reaccredited, an honor only a small percentage of the nation's hospitals can claim.
All Heart Hospital nurses specialize in cardiac care. And just like everything else, the more you practice the better you get. In fact, our nurses lead research into new cardiology care protocols and patient monitoring.
