About - Main image

Since 1984 till 2011 our hospital had been located in one small building (Module A), which, although regularly improved through the years, was insufficient to fulfil the conditions required for the performance of its duties. Therefore, with the support of EU funds and the Polish Government, we managed to build a new facility – Module B which enabled us to open new, much-needed hospital units for cardiology and angiology, heart failure, and minimally invasive cardiac, vascular and endovascular surgery. The new building accommodates modern OR with a hybrid room, and laboratory rooms for cardiac electrophysiology and hemodynamics.

Four years later, in 2015, we’ve extended our facilities and opened a new Module C – a nationwide clinical and scientific centre for lung and heart transplantation and treatment of cystic fibrosis in adults and children. The new building, alongside highly functional hospital units for the treatment of patients with cystic fibrosis, accommodates advanced OR, technoscientific and medical imaging labs furnished with high-tech medical equipment. These facilities create a Silesian centre for the comprehensive treatment of patients with severe heart, lung and vascular diseases.

For over 30 years Silesian Centre for Heart Diseases has been ranked among the nation’s best hospitals. The leading position of our hospital is a form of acknowledgement for the main factor of our success: our employees, the most committed administration and medical staff, friendly, competent and highly qualified specialists with exceptional experience gained in best medical centres all over the world. Another unquestionable asset of ours is the training program for residents, young and ambitious specialists-to-be, who guarantee the continuous dynamic development of our hospital.

Guided by our mission: "Cure the heart, save the life, restore hope" we are determined to provide the best possible medical care.
