Whatever your specific condition and treatment, you can count on your WellSpan specialists and team for their medical wisdom and their compassionate, personalized care.

Patient care that puts your goals first

The entire WellSpan organization (and then some) backing your recovery

Patient care at WellSpan isn’t just about you and your doctor. Rather, it involves a whole network of providers—within and outside WellSpan—working together toward your recovery. This comprehensive support gives you the resources you need to get back to health as quickly as possible.

You won’t have to go far for your appointment. WellSpan facilities are conveniently located across Adams, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties, and there’s always plenty of parking.

Services

Diagnostic Cardiology

Today’s advanced imaging technologies—along with other tests—enable our cardiologists to get an excellent idea of your heart’s health and functional capability. Your WellSpan physician draws on all of these tools to give you the most precise diagnosis possible. Learn more about diagnostic cardiology.

Interventional Cardiology

When you're having a heart attack, every minute counts. Minutes equal precious heart muscle and can be the difference between life and death. That's why WellSpan has state-of-the-art interventional cardiac cath labs in each of its communities.

Electrophysiology

The heart is an electrical system in miniature, as electrical signals keep the heart’s chambers beating in sequence and at the right speed. As experts in electrophysiology—the study of your heart’s electrical system—WellSpan’s cardiologists use an array of techniques to treat irregular heartbeats. Learn more about electrophysiology.

Cardiac Surgery

Our highly qualified surgeons perform a broad range of cardiac procedures, from the simple to the very complex. Already at the top of their field, our physicians stay current on the latest research and apply it whenever possible. They are constantly looking for ways to minimize the impact of surgery and give patients their best quality of life. Learn more about cardiac surgery.

Vascular Surgery

Vascular surgery can be about giving you the look you want, as in the case of spider vein removal, but it can also be about saving your life, as in the case of an aneurysm repair. Our highly trained vascular surgeons cover the whole spectrum, with a focus—whenever possible—on minimally invasive techniques. Learn more about vascular surgery.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

If you are recovering from heart surgery or living with a heart condition, there’s no need to go it alone. WellSpan’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program offers comprehensive support—both physical and emotional—to speed your recovery and improve your life. You’ll also get dietary, exercise and other tips to keep your heart in great shape going forward. Learn more about cardiac rehabilitation.

Heart & Vascular Research

WellSpan’s Heart and Vascular Research Department, along with WellSpan Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery and Vascular Surgery, actively participate in clinical trials from around the world.

Heart Failure Program

We can help you manage your heart failure diagnosis, and more importantly, help you improve you quality of life.

Structural Heart Program

Structural heart disease involves disorders of the cardiac valves and heart chambers. This complex set of conditions requires a specialized, skilled treatment approach from a team comprised of physicians from multiple cardiovascular specialties.

VAD Program

A ventricular assist device (VAD) can help improve the quality of life for late stage heart failure patients. Learn about the latest advances in VAD.

Atrial Appendage Closure

Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of stroke. WATCHMAN is an implanted device that helps form a barrier from dangerous blood clots in patients who should not take blood-thinning medications.
