SpecialtyCare perfusionists have been providing clinical care in Tri-Cities for over 30 years. Our team consists of 3 perfusionists at both Holston Valley and Bristol. We perform all adult cardiac surgery procedures, except transplants and VADs. We are involved with TAVRs and several hybrid procedures where we partner with cardiology and EP, and we have minimal ECMO deployment/monitoring (5-8/year). We perform 350 cases per team each year, and we welcome both experienced perfusionists and new graduate clinicians to join our team to enjoy the benefits of working with our awesome group. We provide a float perfusionist at each hospital, which makes it an ideal location for new-grads to be trained.

We welcome new graduates!
