The Eastern Heart Clinic was first established at the Prince Henry Hospital Campus in 1991 by the cardiologists who still own and manage the Clinic today. Being doctor owned and enjoying a very stable management team we are able to provide a consistent clinical focus which translates into the best results for you
We are a leading group of health professionals who diagnose and treat patients with heart disease, as well as patients with blockages in the circulatory system. We use angioplasty and stents to treat narrowed or blocked arteries around the heart. Permanent pacemakers and implantable defibrillators are also routinely inserted in the Cath lab.
You will have access to a team of cardiologists, a specialised nursing team and support staff who are committed to you achieving the best possible outcome. We work hard to attract and retain the best staff for your care.
The standard of the Eastern Heart Clinic credentialing of Cardiologists is excellent. We carefully review applicants' skill and experience prior to delineating exactly which procedures, if any, they are able to perform in our facility after comparison to the current guidelines from the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand.
Eastern Heart Clinic is well known for its work on minimising radiation dose to our patients, working with companies such as GE, Siemens and Philips to optimise machine settings. At both Sutherland and Eastern Heart Clinics patients receive a much lower dose of radiation than the average machine world wide, an achievement we are proud of.
The Clinic provides a diagnostic and interventional service to public and private patients. We hold contracts with the local Area Health Service for public patients.
For private patients, we are a 'no gap' facility with all the major health funds, however you may have a small excess to pay to your fund depending on your cover.
Your own doctor may not necessarily do the procedure. We have cardiologists who specialise in doing angiograms, angioplasties, implanting pacemakers and performing radiofrequency ablation for arrhythmias.

Statistics & Results
High volume of cases, specifically in coronary intervention, has been shown to give the best success rate. Annually, the Clinic performs approximately 4000 procedures.
The use of stents after Angioplasty has increased with improvement in stent design and the new antiplatelet treatments. Currently stents are deployed in more than 95% of Angioplasty cases.
Overall results and any complications are reviewed quarterly, revealing excellent clinical results to date. At these sessions we pride ourselves on critical discussion so techniques can be continually improved.
We are dedicated to improving our clinical results and we can only do this with the assistance of our patients. Each patient receives a leaflet outlining our approach.
