Peninsula Heart centre – excellence in cardiac care
Dr Greg Szto established the Peninsula Heart Centre in July 2000. Over the past two decades, we have grown from a small, specialist practice to a state-of-the-art heart care centre on the Mornington Peninsula. With a team of dedicated cardiologists, technicians, nurses and support staff, we serve a range of patients and conduct hundreds of procedures annually.
“ Patient care is a true partnership between the patient, the GP and myself. Being able to help someone with their cardiovascular health is a true privilege and one that I am honoured to participate in. We measure our success by patient outcomes and not on being the biggest but simply the best.” Greg Szto, head of cardiology.
This commitment has seen Greg build a comprehensive state-of-the-art heart centre that is innovative, progressive and provides excellent cardiac care.
The Centre has close ties with Peninsula Private Hospital, where he is also Director of Cardiology.
We take time to understand your perspectives regarding your own heart health. We aim to ensure that all our patients have a pathway to prompt and high-quality cardiovascular care.
At Peninsula Heart Centre we endeavour to make cardiac care affordable and accessible to all our patients.
For our patients (and prospective patients), we encourage you to browse through this website and learn as much as you can about the services we have to offer and the procedures that we can perform to treat your heart condition. Learn about the various conditions and tests that are available to assist you in understanding your circumstances.
Our cardiologists and nurses are available to answer your questions or discuss your management options and developments in the treatment of heart conditions.
