Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute’s network throughout the Carolinas makes exceptional cardiac care accessible to those who need it. More than 90 physicians and 25 care locations comprise their network, with the heart transplant and mechanical circulatory support team doing their work at Carolinas HealthCare System’s main hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina. As one of only a few in the region, the advanced heart failure program plays a critical role in the health of Carolina residents.
Sanger partners with Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Children’s Hospital, ranked a best children’s hospital by U.S. News and World Report for excellence in pediatric heart surgery and cardiology.
Based in Charlotte, Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute is one of only a few cardiovascular centers in North Carolina with an adult heart transplant program. We are also the closest transplant center to most patients in South Carolina.
Sanger’s team continually surpasses national and regional averages for length of stay and survival rates. Unlike most programs, our transplant team does not require patients to live in Charlotte before or after their surgery—they can return home where their care is followed remotely.
Recently awarded for excellence in healthcare by the Charlotte Business Journal, our Heart Success Program serves as a tool to transition heart failure patients from the acute care setting following their hospital discharge. With plans to expand across the System, the program improves quality of life while reducing readmission rates by reducing variations in care, engaging family members to ensure physician direction is followed (as in diet and medication management) as well as providing the appropriate tools and resources patients may need.
