Cardiac Sciences Divisions
There are two divisions within the Department of Cardiac Sciences and two affiliated divisions.
There are about 75 cardiologists in the Division of Cardiology that cover the four adult-care hospitals within Alberta Health Services' Calgary Zone. In addition, there are a number of clinics situated around the city of Calgary that serve the community, providing general cardiology and specialty services.
There are 10 surgeons within the Division of Cardiac Surgery who perform about 1,500 procedures each year, ranging from complex valve replacements to coronary artery bypasses. The education program within this division attracts the best and brightest from across Canada and is known for its hands-on approach.
Cardiac anesthesiologists hold joint appointments in the Departments of Anesthesiology and Cardiac Sciences, and work closely with cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, cardiac intensivists, cardiac nurses and perfusionists.
The Department of Critical Care includes four adult intensive care units located in three tertiary level hospitals. It operates 63 beds, 12 of which are dedicated to post-operative cardiac surgical care.
