Paris Saint-Joseph Hospital Cardiology department is managed by Dr Romain Cador.

It covers the hospitalisations, general and specialized consultations and cardiac testing for prevention, screening, diagnostic, provision of intensive coronary care and treatment for all heart conditions.

The department includes a 22 bed cardiology hospital ward and a 12 bed intensive care unit where patients can be kept under constant observation.

The department operates 365 days a year, 7 days a week, with cardiology medical staff on call 24 hours a day (night-shift and bank holiday duty cardiologists).

This department is also part of the hospital’s cardiovascular and metabolic diseases centre thus ensuring specialist and multi-disciplinary treatment for patients.

Whilst cardiac emergencies represent a significant part of the department’s activity, patients may also be admitted to the department for pre-planned diagnostics, interventions or the adjustment of their cardiac treatment protocols. Some of these tests or interventions can be provided on an out-patient basis.
