Welcome to the Tampa Bay Heart Institute!

The Tampa Bay Heart Institute has delivered unsurpassed cardiovascular care since 2004. Serving patients in the Bay area, the institute offers a full range of cardiac diagnostics, interventions, and treatments.

Our Services

The dedicated team at the Tampa Bay Heart Institute brings together both broad expertise and specific specializations. That combination means we can offer patients a wide spectrum of cardiovascular services:

Patients who are diagnosed here can also receive treatment and rehabilitation with us. That approach means patients spend less time explaining their medical history and filling out forms, and more time recovering.

A Growing Network

The Tampa Bay Heart Institute is affiliated with Largo Medical Center and Northside Hospital. Should patients have other health concerns, we have access to the vast network of experts and specialists in the HCA family. And we’re excited to welcome The Heart and Vascular Institute of Florida South (HVIF) to our family. HVIF is now affiliated with Northside Hospital as part of the HCA Pinellas market.

“Together with the Tampa Bay Heart Institute at Northside Hospital, The Heart & Vascular Institute of Florida South aims to advance cardiovascular research, education and clinical excellence in cardiac disease prevention, cardiac diagnosis and treatment, and coronary and vascular intervention,” said Peter Wassmer, MD, cardiologist with HVIF. “We look forward to working with Northside Hospital to further expand the electrophysiology program and provide unparalleled cardiovascular care to our community.”

The new partnership will enhance the Tampa Bay Heart Institute’s ability to deliver cardiovascular care to patients in the area. HVIF is one of the largest providers of cardiovascular care in the region, with three locations throughout St. Petersburg. It has 16 board certified physicians on staff and more than 100 employees.

We’re excited to welcome the HVIF team to the Tampa Bay Heart Institute! If you have questions about cardiovascular care at the Tampa Bay Area Heart Institute, please contact us today. Visit the Tampa Bay Heart Institute online or call 727-521-4411.
