Morton Hospital - Treatments We Offer

The Clinic for Cardiac and Vascular Care at Morton Hospital offers patients world class, state-of-the-art cardiac and vascular treatments that are tailored to their needs.

In October of 2011, Morton Hospital opened an electrophysiology (EP) clinic, offering services to assist in diagnosing and treating patients with heart rhythm disturbances, also known as cardiac arrhythmias. Depending on the treatment, some procedures are performed at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton, Mass.

Also, in 2011, our cardiomyopathy clinic opened.  This clinic specializes in treating patients suffering from heart failure, pulmonary hypertension and conditions such as weak heart muscles.  The goal of the clinic is to treat and monitor patients, educating them about weight control, blood pressure, heart rate and other preventive practices. 

Patients with certain vascular conditions are seen at Morton Hospital. Specific treatments and procedures of these conditions are sometimes performed at Saint Anne's Hospital in Fall River, Mass.
