Our institute has been serving East-Hungary’s cardiovascular patients for decades. Throughout the years due to the increasing demand in our continuously developing institute we were able to provide state-of-the-art care for more and more patients. The therapeutic guidelines might change continuously, but one thing is standing on stable foundation and stayed the same for the last 30-40 years: the uncompromising will to help.
Our group of 120 physician, nurses and attendants works with enthusiasm every day to make our patients’ stay as comfortable as possible, in both outpatient and inpatient settings. The staff regularly takes part in postgraduate trainings, conferences, where they present their research results and bedside experiences, thus serving the possibility of successful patient care and knowledge exchange.
By investigating the function of heart-muscle cells our researchers thriving to find the answers for different heart diseases, understanding their mechanism, progression and possible treatments.
It cannot be any different aim of the website other than to present you our work- in words and pictures, interviews and professional, up-to-date articles. The site provides you a scenario of different fields of cardiology, moments from the work of regular wards and intensive care units, information about the work of the staff, research achievements and educational processes, along with the state of medicine- today. You can find information on obtaining clinic appointments and visiting hours. We are interviewing renowned professionals on frequently appearing “heart-problems”, providing details on healthy lifestyle and prevention- strictly in common parlance.
I hope our website will reach its goal and prove that the institute is not just a building of bricks filled with patients, but a place that is for you, for your well-being and health- every day, 24/7, on weekdays and weekends- continuously.
Enjoy the site!
