St. Joseph Heart Valve Clinic Opens In Tacoma

The St. Joseph Heart Valve Clinic has opened to provide a unique, multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach for treating problems in one or all the heart’s four valves, also called valvular heart disease.

Located at Franciscan Health System’s St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma, the clinic offers convenient, same-day access to diagnostics, cardiac catheterization laboratory and surgery center. It was established in partnership with St. Joseph Cardiothoracic Surgeons and Franciscan cardiologists.

Patients who need a cardiologist workup and possible surgical consultation can be referred to the clinic by a family practice or internal medicine physician. Patients already seeing a cardiologist, but need a surgical consultation, can be referred by his or her cardiologist.
