Cardiovascular care at Guthrie has a long and distinguished legacy as a leader of innovation. This history goes back 50 years, with pioneering open heart surgery in 1967 at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital. Guthrie led the first Structural Heart Program for the treatment of heart and valve defects in our region, and was the first to offer patients the benefits of a hybrid operating room for heart and vascular procedures.

Guthrie continues to lead the way today, offering the first TAVR minimally invasive heart valve replacement in the Twin Tiers and providing The Watchman Device for treatment of atrial fibrillation. Our commitment to provide the best continues into the future, with a new $15.5 million, 17,160-square-foot cardiovascular center, which opened in May 2019.
