Our cardiac services

Our heart doctors use advanced technology to diagnose and treat various heart conditions.

Heart screening and imaging

We offer a variety of diagnostic services to assess your heart condition. Our team is able to perform:

  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Echocardiograms (ECGs)
  • Electrocardiograms (EKGs)
  • Peripheral vascular angiography
  • Renal angiography
  • Stress testing

Our cardiac catheterization lab is equipped with a specialized imaging system that allows doctors to see the blood vessels of the heart. During catheterization, X-ray dye is inserted into the coronary arteries to detect any blockages.

Heart attack care

Most of the damage sustained from a heart attack occurs within the first two hours. If it's recognized during this time period, we have a much greater chance of decreasing the damage to your heart muscle and improving your overall treatment and recovery.

Signs of a heart attack

Many times, people may experience these early heart attack symptoms:

  • Anxiety
  • Back pain
  • Chest pressure, squeezing or discomfort
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling of fullness
  • Jaw pain
  • Nausea
  • Pain that travels down one or both arms
  • Shortness of breath
Heart attack treatment at our Accredited Chest Pain Center

As a Chest Pain Center accredited by the American College of Cardiology, we use a protocol-driven approach to heart care at our hospital. It allows us to reduce time-to-treatment during the critical first stages of a heart attack. This means we are able to offer advanced care, better outcomes, enhanced quality of life and faster treatment.

The most important factor in the treatment of a developing heart attack is getting emergency care quickly.

If you suspect you are having a heart attack, immediately call 911.
