Most heart patients are referred to Asante’s heart and vascular program by their primary care physician or cardiologist. To provide comprehensive cardiac care, we employ a dedicated and innovative team of cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons; in total we are affiliated with more than 50 cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists, intensivists, and hospitalists.

At Asante we offer a full spectrum of exceptional heart care that ranges from laboratory testing to routine procedures, complex surgeries, and cardiac rehabilitation. We pioneered the region’s first open heart surgery program and cardiac catheterization laboratory. Since then we’ve remained a leading provider of cardiovascular care in the Pacific Northwest.

Although we strongly believe in making cutting-edge medical procedures available in our community, there are some relatively rare cardiac procedures, such as a heart transplant, that are best referred to a major university medical center that performs them on a regular basis. For this reason Asante has established a close working relationship with the cardiologists at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon. Brian Morrison, MD, of Southern Oregon Cardiology LLC travels to Portland every month to teach cardiology fellows and see patients in the OHSU Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic; he also provides follow-up care for these patients once they are back home. OHSU recently received a $125 million grant to establish the OHSU Cardiovascular Institute and continues to enhance its program.
