St. Louis Heart Surgeons, Heart Doctors, and Cardiovascular Specialists at SLU Hospital
It’s a new approach to heart care. SLUCare cardiologists and cardiac surgeons at Saint Louis University Hospital have developed a more patient-focused, individualized concept with the Center for Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care – the “C4.”
Co-directed by SLUCare physicians Michael Lim, MD and Richard Lee, MD, the new center is housed on the hospital’s main campus and is highlighted by their specialized team’s fusion of what are normally two separate services – cardiology and cardiac surgery. This ensures that heart patients have all their medical teams working collaboratively to provide the best possible care.
Our cardiology department at Saint Louis University Hospital have been recognized for:
- Delivering care that’s consistent with the American Heart Association’s most up-to-date scientific guidelines for the treatment of coronary artery disease, and heart failure.
- Saint Louis University Hospital is the only hospital in the St. Louis region to earn the American Heart Association’s Get With the Guidelines (GWTG) Gold Plus performance award for treating patients with heart failure and stroke.
- Multiple members of our team have been recognized in the Best Doctors in America list and St. Louis Magazine’s “Best Doctors”.
