Refer a Patient

To refer a patient for heart surgery, please call 206-320-7300


Referring your patients to the Swedish Heart and Vascular Institute gives them access to:

  • the highest volume program in the Greater Seattle area performing heart surgery
  • dedicated cardiac surgeons who specialize in cardiac surgery, and that’s all they do – they do not perform thoracic or vascular surgery
  • robotic heart surgery
  • minimally invasive heart surgery
  • stentless valve surgery
  • total arterial revascularization – using only arteries (not veins) to revascularize the heart
  • exceptionally high level of personal care
  • education and support

Urgent Cases

Our care team accepts patient transfers 24/7 from providers and hospitals throughout the Pacific Northwest. To facilitate an urgent patient transfer, call the Swedish Transfer Center at 1-866-470-4233.
