At Levinson, you can be confident that you’ll receive exceptional care from our region's top cardiovascular experts.
We Fix the Most Broken Hearts
Levinson Heart Institute, located within Chippenham Hospital, cares for more hearts, valves, veins, and arteries than any other health system in Central Virginia. Opened in 2003, Levinson was the first heart hospital in Virginia. For more than a decade, physicians and hospital teams have worked tirelessly to build the region’s premier cardiac care center, proving that experience matters when you’re dealing with the complex cardiovascular system.
Emergency and Intensive Heart Care
Levinson Heart Institute is an Accredited Chest Pain Center and that provides fast, skilled responses to potential heart attacks, and also carries a Joint Commission Disease-Specific Certification for Chest Pain. In certain cases, we employ the use of induced hypothermia, an innovative treatment that saves precious time when treating cardiac arrest. HCA Virginia hospitals submit data to the Penn Alliance for Therapeutic Hypothermia (PATH) registry which is the first U.S. national registry for collecting data and benchmarks about induced hypothermia.
When your heart condition requires hospitalization, Levinson Heart Institute offers inpatient cardiac intensive care. Our private, 12-bed cardiac ICU is a patient-centered care environment designed to promote faster healing and shorter stays. We also use eICU WATCH – technology that allows our doctors to monitor you remotely throughout the night, in collaboration with hospital staff.
