Advanced Heart Rhythm Services
Our cardiac program rivals the best in the country. However, it is incomplete. Every year, hundreds of patients from across the BC interior suffer urgent, life-threatening complications arising from abnormal heart rhythms or cardiac arrhythmias. In all cases, patients must wait for a bed to become available in Vancouver or Victoria, then travel hundreds of kilometers from home to receive the lifesaving treatment.
