Welcome to HeartWest
Founded in 2001 by cardiologists living and working in the west of Melbourne for the benefit of underserviced areas of the west and northwest, HeartWest has grown into a premier cardiology service in these areas of Melbourne and beyond. As one of the first cardiology group practices to form in Australia, HeartWest has maintained a focus on an affordable, accessible and high quality service to ensure optimal patient experience and outcome.
