See how we're faster than the national average at treating heart attacks.Providing hope and healing for those diagnosed with cardiac disease is an area of specialization at Carolinas Medical Center-Mercy, and has been for decades. In fact, some of the first open-heart procedures in the region were performed here in the 1950s. Even now, the board-certified cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons from Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute have access to some of the most advanced technologies and utilize the latest treatment techniques. Together with CMC-Mercy's nursing staff, dietitians, therapists and patient educators, they work as a team to ensure each patient receives the most personal, compassionate, and effective care available.

CMC-Mercy, located in Charlotte, NC, has been a pioneer in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease, dating back to the 1950s, when surgeons here performed some of the first open-heart surgeries in the area. Learn more about Sanger's program history.
