Heart Institute Of The Caribbean Ltd was established in 2005. Heart Institute Of The Caribbean Ltd is an innovative, dynamic healthcare centre that serves as the centre of exc
ellence for cardiovascular diseases (CVD), occupational health, diabetes care and general internal medicine in the West Indies. Heart Institute Of The Caribbean Ltd is located in Kingston, Jamaica and is the regional centre for comprehensive and sophisticated diagnosis and management of all forms of heart diseases.
Heart Institute Of The Caribbean Ltd provides expert diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular and general medical conditions and consultative opinion locally and also remotely via a network of specialists linked by a global telemetrically network. These services were previously not available in Jamaica and the only option for patients in the region was to seek or procure such services in the USA, particularly in Florida.
Heart Institute of the Caribbean is designed to meet the needs of heart patients, through a team approach to coordinated care provided by highly skilled doctors, nurses, and medical technicians.
The concept of the Heart Institute of the Caribbean originated with the desire of the founding physicians to develop both their own range of services as well as the ability to provide these services to communities throughout the region. Read more......Read less

Partners Interventional Centre of Jamaica (PICJ), is a full service cardiovascular centre located on the second floor of the Medical Associates Hospital, in Kingston. The cent
re offers cardiac and internal medicine consultation services, as well as non-invasive and invasive cardiac investigative procedures including cardiac catheterization.
Cardiac catheterization is a highly-specialized medical procedure. This is performed by invasive cardiologists which involves passing tubes within the blood vessels of the body to the heart, to get information about the blood flow within the chambers and the blood vessels of the heart. These procedures are required by patients with: heart attacks, chest pain due to reduced blood flow to the heart, congenital heart disease and diseases of the heart valves. The procedures may be diagnostic as well as therapeutic (interventional).
Cardiac catheterization was introduced in Jamaica over 50 years ago at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) with the first cases being performed in 1966 by a visiting team. Between 1966 and 1978, 606 cases were performed on children and adults.
With the return in 2006 of Dr Victor Elliott, following the completion of Interventional Cardiology studies in Canada, the number of cases performed in the laboratory rose to 198 with 37 of them being interventional. By 2011, 494 cases were done with a gradual increase in the number of cases done each year. Read more......Read less
