    Welcome to the Pacific Open Heart Association.

    The Pacific Open Heart Association (POHA) is comprised of individuals who have undergone open heart surgery. We invite you to look through our website in order to better understand our association's mission and goals.  

    We offer moral support and encouragement during the sometimes bewildering periods before and after open heart surgery. Experience shows that both patient and family benefit from seeing and chatting with a former 'open hearter'.  

    If you wish, one of our members will be pleased to assist you. Please see our contact page to get in touch with one of our members.
