Prefontaine Cardiovascular Center

The Right Cardiac Care Is Right Here

Our cardiovascular services team has one overriding goal and passion: To improve heart health and save lives on Oregon’s South Coast.

We do it by combining medical excellence with hometown accessibility, because delivering sophisticated treatment close to home isn’t just a convenience, it’s a lifesaver.

Coos and Curry counties experience Oregon’s highest rates of cardiovascular mortality.  Bay Area Hospital is fighting back with a comprehensive approach to diagnosing, treating, and preventing cardiac and vascular disease, including an advanced cardiac catheterization laboratory.

Since opening in 2013, our state-of-the-art cardiovascular center gives South Coast residents access to a full complement of cardiovascular diagnostic tools and interventional cardiology procedures, plus individualized, patient-centered rehabilitation services. We offer advanced care for conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels, including arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, heart disease, hypertension, vascular disease, and more.

The Prefontaine Cardiovascular Center is staffed by a dedicated and diverse group of healthcare professionals, including Dr. Rick Latham, Dr. John Frank, and Dr. Wojciech Nowak. Our highly trained, experienced staff members receive ongoing training to stay up-to-date on the latest advances in cardiac care. 

We’re building a heart-healthy community!
