Cardiac surgery and appointment information – Learn more

For the safety of our patients and caregivers, we have changed how we deliver care to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We’re working hard to make appointments safe and convenient for you.  Depending on your medical needs, your appointments could take place in-person, by phone or by video. If an appointment or procedure must be rescheduled for some reason, we will contact you to let you know. Rest assured, all urgent needs will be addressed promptly.

Our patients can request an appointment using their patient portal account. You can create a patient portal account here.

Visitor restrictions are still in place for your protection. Please refer to our visitor policy for more details.

We align with Delaware Public Health recommendations to offer care safely. With recent changes, we are now scheduling elective surgeries and procedures. Patients who need time-sensitive, medically necessary procedures are given the highest priority.

As an added safety measure, our care providers will arrange for you to be tested for COVID-19 at a ChristianaCare laboratory before your elective procedure.
