Saint Joseph is ranked 2nd in the nation for Cardiovascular Surgical Services. Our heart surgeons treat everything from emergencies to long-term conditions, including:

We perform a wide range of surgical procedures, such as:

  • Heart valve replacement â?? Our expert heart surgeons use traditional and minimally invasive procedures to repair or replace heart valves that are not functioning properly.
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) â?? Expert surgeons use a piece of healthy blood vessel, usually from the leg or wrist, to bypass a blocked portion of coronary artery that is reducing blood flow to the heart.
  • ASD and PFO closures â?? Procedures to treat these congenital heart defects, often found in children.
  • Maze procedure â?? Surgical procedure for chronic Afib that creates a new â??mazeâ?? of electrical pathways that can restore normal heart rhythm.
  • TAVR â?? Transcatheter aortic valve replacement places a mechanical valve in the place of a damaged aortic valve and typically involves shorter recovery times than traditional open heart surgery.

Saint Joseph Hospital is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 365-bed facility is one of the top-ranked hospitals in Denver, and has been awarded the highest national recognition possible for nursing excellence â?? Magnet designation â?? by the ANCC. We are proud to extend the mission of SCL Health by providing care for the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Our deep community roots date back to 1873, making us one of the oldest hospitals in Colorado.

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weâ??ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.


Together weâ??ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. Weâ??ll honor each otherâ??s dignity and surpass the standards we set. Weâ??ll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.

Weâ??ll laugh at each otherâ??s jokes (even the bad ones). Weâ??ll hello and high five. Weâ??ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

Weâ??re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
