Cardiovascular conditions we treat

In our emergency room (ER) and our hospital's heart center, we provide comprehensive care for a wide range of cardiovascular conditions, including:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Arrhythmia
  • Heart attack
  • Heart failure (including congestive heart failure)
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Renal artery stenosis
  • ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)
  • Stroke

Services and treatments for cardiovascular conditions

We offer minimally invasive and advanced options for heart treatment, including:

Diagnosing heart and vascular conditions

Successful treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis. So, in addition to complete physical exams, we offer full-service imaging technologies to guide your diagnosis. For heart and vascular conditions, our physicians use specialized technologies, including:

  • Angiography
  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Echocardiography (echo)
  • Electrocardiography (EKG or ECG)

Electrophysiology (EP) services

EP studies can be used to both diagnose and treat issues of the heart's electrical system. When your heart's electrical system is not functioning correctly, your heart rhythm becomes irregular. These abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias), can lead to fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath and heart attacks. In our EP department, we can determine the source of these symptoms and perform procedures to resolve some arrhythmias.

Cardiac catheterization

In our cardiac catheterization laboratory (cath lab), our heart specialists open narrowed or blocked arteries to restore normal blood flow. During these procedures, a physician will insert a catheter (thin, flexible tube) through a blood vessel using live X-rays (fluoroscopy) as a guide.


Our cardiac catheterization procedures include:

  • Angioplasty: opens blood vessels using a tiny balloon to compress the plaque against vessel walls
  • Balloon valvuloplasty: opens malfunctioning heart valves using a tiny balloon
  • Coronary atherectomy: removes plaque from vessel walls
  • Coronary stent: holds blood vessels open using a tiny, permanently implanted tube
  • Intravascular ultrasound: produces images of vessel walls using high-frequency sound waves
  • Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI): treats narrowing (stenosis) of the coronary arteries, either with or without a stent

Minimally invasive and robot-assisted heart and vascular surgery

Our cardiovascular surgeons offer minimally invasive and robot-assisted surgeries for many heart and vascular conditions. Potential benefits of these types of procedures include:

  • Less pain and trauma to the chest
  • Shorter hospital stay and recovery time
  • Smaller incisions

Open-heart surgery

If you and your cardiologist determine open-heart surgery will offer you the best results, our multidisciplinary heart and vascular care team will perform the surgery. This will be performed in our facility, which features:

  • Advanced operating rooms equipped with sophisticated technology
  • Private cardiovascular intensive care patient rooms
  • Access to cardiac rehabilitation services following your surgery

Cardiac rehabilitation

Our cardiac rehabilitation program is specifically designed to improve your health if you have a cardiac condition that may alter your daily life. It can be most beneficial if you have experienced a heart attack or other heart event or certain cardiac procedures, such as bypass surgery, stent placement or transplant.

Our cardiovascular center

Our comprehensive approach to cardiovascular care means both you and your family get the support you need. 

We offer:

  • All-private rooms: Our private rooms provide a therapeutic setting in which you can heal and spend time with family and friends.
  • Convenient location: We offer all of our diagnoses and treatment services in one location, simplifying your access for doctor visits and other appointments.
  • Family-centered approach: We provide a comfortable waiting lounge with televisions for families. Also, our patient navigator updates your family on your progress during heart or vascular surgery.

Nationally recognized heart and vascular care

We are proud to be recognized by many different organizations for our heart care services. Some of our national-level recognitions include:

Additionally, our imaging services department has received multiple accreditations from the American College of Radiology. These include accreditations for heart-related exams such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, nuclear medicine and computerized tomography (CT).


Multidisciplinary heart specialists

You will receive compassionate, personalized care from our multidisciplinary team that includes:

  • Board-certified cardiologists
  • Board-certified cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons
  • Accredited radiologists
  • Certified physician assistants
