Heart Center of Excellence

The Heart Center of Excellence at Florida Hospital North Pinellas is committed to providing the best cardiovascular care available for our neighbors in Tarpon Springs. Whether you come to us through the emergency room or a recommendation from your primary care physician, we offer cutting-edge cardiovascular treatments and procedures to help restore your heart to working order. 
 
The Heart Center features highly qualified, board-certified electrophysiologists and cardiologists—including expert cardiologists specializing in interventional cardiology—and has a well-established Cardiology Department. In addition, we are an Accredited Chest Pain Center, which demonstrates our level of expertise in treating chest pain cases. We have a successful ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) Program, designed to successfully diagnose and effectively treat a very dangerous type of heart attack. 
 

As part of our commitment to better serving our community, the Heart Center offers a GE Vivid S6 Echocardiogram. This sophisticated instructed has advanced capabilities, and can help our experts more quickly and accurately diagnose cardiovascular diseases, especially diseases of the heart valves, in a noninvasive manner and without side effects. In addition, our onsite catheterization lab makes it easy and convenient for you to get the critical tests you need to evaluate your heart health.

Electrophysiology

At Florida Hospital North Pinellas, we offer a dedicated electrophysiology lab that is staffed by experienced, independent Electrophysiologists and Registered Cardiovascular EP Specialists. Our lab offers Electrophysiology (EP) Studies utilizing 3D mapping to pinpoint the type and source of abnormal heart arrhythmias quickly. We utilize implantable devices such as pacemakers (PPM) and cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) to control the heart's rhythm, in addition to cardiac ablation or radiofrequency ablation to permanently eliminate the source of electrical disruption.

We offer treatment for many types of arrhythmia including:

  • Accessory pathway tachycardias
  • Atrial flutter
  • Bradycardia
  • Premature atrial contractions
  • Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs)
  • Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT)

EnSite Precision Cardiac Mapping System

Florida Hospital North Pinellas is proud to offer the EnSite Precision™ cardiac mapping system, a next generation platform, which enables tailored treatment for patients with cardiac arrhythmias.

Benefits of the new system include:

  • Minimal fluoroscopic radiation exposure for the patient and clinician
  • More efficient diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of heart arrhythmias
  • Individualized approach for each patient and situation
