HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake: A Higher Level of Community Care

Over five decades of care for families throughout the Bay Area.

At HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake, we’re proud of our five decade commitment to delivering high-quality, compassionate care to families who reside in Bay Area communities.

During this time, we’ve seen tremendous growth in our region, and have responded with expanded services, advanced technologies, and a growing team of exceptional and highly skilled physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals.

Our dedication to continuous improvement has garnered awards and accreditations in several specialty areas, including cardiology, neurology and stroke, cancer, neonatal care, bariatric surgery, wound care, radiology and pathology.

Advanced cardiology at The Heart Hospital

The only exclusive heart hospital south of the Texas Medical Center, The Heart Hospital at HCA Houston Clear Lake provides nationally-recognized care in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and recovery of cardiovascular diseases.

Last year, our heart surgeons performed their first transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedure – a minimally invasive alternative to open-heart surgery – that eliminates cutting open the chest to expose the heart. We have since completed more than 200 TAVR procedures. “The FDA imposes strict requirements for hospitals wishing to practice TAVR, including successfully completing a certain number of open heart, surgical aortic valve, catheter and percutaneous coronary interventions per year,” said Todd Caliva, HCA Houston Clear Lake Chief Executive Officer. “Our Heart Hospital is the only dedicated heart hospital in the Bay Area that performs more than 1,000 heart procedures annually.”

To support the growing number of families moving to our area, The Heart Hospital is planning an expansion that will add two new heart catheterization and electrophysiology (EP) labs. The expansion will enable us to diagnose and treat more patients with cardiovascular diseases and to test and assess the heart’s electrical system or activity.

We are an Accredited Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI and Resuscitation as designated by the American College of Cardiology and a certified Comprehensive Stroke Center by The Joint Commission
