Cardiology

San Leandro Hospital offers a variety of cardiac diagnostic testing on an inpatient as well as outpatient basis.  We recognize that cardiovascular disease affects millions of people.  Heart disease is the No.1 cause of death in the United States, surpassing cancer.  Yet, the vast majority of heart problems can be effectively treated once they are recognized.

Our comprehensive approach includes evaluation, treatment and follow up of patients with all types of cardiac conditions.

Our specialists are among the best in the area with combined expertise in clinical, non-invasive, interventional cardiology and cardiac arrhythmias.  Excellence is achieved through the education and technical skills of professional/technical staff performing the studies.
