Collaboration with Columbia HeartSource
Erlanger Health System is collaborating with the Columbia University Medical Center’s innovative HeartSource program to elevate the scope and quality of heart care in the southeast and beyond.
The Erlanger and Columbia relationship will provide ongoing interaction between cardiologists in New York City and Chattanooga. By sharing clinical data, the two cardiovascular teams can:
- make better decisions,
- improve patient outcomes and
- continually increase overall cardiovascular performance.
The collaboration allows Erlanger to have 24/7 access to the newest knowledge and therapies in cardiovascular treatment and care.
Columbia ranks among the top 10 cardiology programs in the country and US News & World Report ranks Columbia among the nation’s top three “Best Hospitals for Adult Cardiology & Heart Surgery.”
