Our Heart is set on Saving Lives.
If you or someone you love smokes or suffers from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, shows signs of cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease or any other heart problem, it’s good to know there’s a place you can rely on for world-class cardiac care, that place is Caribbean Heart Care Medcorp Limited (CHCm). We are a full-service Cardiac Care Centre established in 1993 with the goal of making open-heart surgery and advanced heart care immediately accessible to cardiac patients in Trinidad and Tobago and across the Caribbean.
Since opening in 1993, CHCm’s team of local and international heart surgeons have saved the lives of thousands of patients including children who have had open-heart surgery and other complex cardiac surgical procedures. Over 7,000 patients have had life-saving Angiograms and or Angioplasties performed by our experienced Cardiology Department. We have also diagnosed and successfully treated over 20,000 patients. Some are our own patients while others have been referred to us by their physicians, other hospitals, clinics, as well as those who have simply walked in for cardiovascular consultations and investigations.
CHCm’s Vascular and Endovascular team treats patients with lower limb arterial diseases resulting from diabetes in order to prevent the possibility of amputation. Our Neuro-Radiology team is by far the most experienced in the Caribbean for the treatment of Brain Aneurysms; a cause of sudden unexplained death/hemorrhagic stroke. We have Interventional Radiologists who have been assisting in the fight against cancer with procedures such as chemo embolisation, tumor embolisation, bile duct drainage and stenting together with various minimally invasive procedures that were previously performed under open surgery.CHCm’sCardiac Electrophysiology Unit has also enabled patients with heartbeats that are too slow or too fast (arrhythmia) the benefit of pacemakers and radiofrequency ablation. This procedure can cure patients who suffer from heart arrhythmia a condition that causes dizziness, fainting and sometimes great discomfort.
CHCm, has been providing heart care for decades and continues to provide quality care to the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago with strict UK based standards. CHCm is the first cardiovascular care centre in the Caribbean to be internationally accredited since 2015 by QHA Trent which is a UK based organization which accredits healthcare providers using evidence-based standards.
Patients’ Success is Our Success … and much of it is attributed to the experience and expertise of CHCm’s team of Heart Surgeons, Cardiologists, Interventional Cardiologists and Radiologists, all of whom have received the best international experience and training.
