At Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital, we are constantly refining our practices to make your treatment as painless and comfortable as possible. Our specialized team is knowledgeable about the most current procedures and routinely performs minimally invasive techniques with the smallest incisions possible for bariatric, general and some cardiac surgeries.
Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital’s house supervisors have big hearts when it comes to caring for others – especially one bedraggled little dog who looked lost and alone.
After your procedure or surgery, you will be transferred to the post-procedure area to a private room. Your recovery will be monitored for approximately 2 to 4 hours or as long as necessary to assure you are ready to go home.
Patients are offered refreshments and a light meal. If you have any specific dietary restrictions or food preferences, please communicate this to your nurse. Once settled in your room, family and friends may visit you as you so desire.
Enter through the hospital’s main entrance. You may stop by the front desk in our main lobby, and staff will be glad to escort you to the registration lobby. If you know where the registration lobby is located, you may go directly there.

Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital’s cardiovascular staff received the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) – formally recognizing it as one of the top intensive care units in the country.
