Heart Surgery Program

Winter Haven Hospital has been rated as having a leading heart surgery program by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and we do more heart surgeries than any other hospital in our area. The cardiovascular surgeons at our Bostick Heart Center specialize in minimally invasive and traditional heart and thoracic surgeries including coronary artery bypass surgery, valve repairs and replacements, aneurysm repairs, lung surgery and pacemaker and defibrillator insertions. The surgeons work together with the cardiologists, interventional cardiologists and anesthesiologists to deliver a collaborative approach customized to each of our patient’s needs.
