Learn more about the services they offer.

Cardiac Catheterization 

  • State-of-the-art facility and equipment
  • Latest innovations in percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, coronary stenting, and rotational atherectomy
  • Advanced interventional radiology techniques include diagnosis and intervention for arterial occlusive disease, embolism, cardiovascular aorta repair, and more

Emergency Care

  • The Emergency Department is an integral part of heart and vascular care
  • Staffed 24/7 by doctors and registered nurses
  • "Protocol" for caring for a chest pain patient is faster than the national average


(EP for short) A specialized area of cardiology that deals with the heart's electrical system and abnormal rhythms, or arrhythmias

  • 3D cardiac mapping, providing speed and increased safety for patients with fast heart rhythm
  • Catheter ablation, treating and potentially curing abnormal heart rhythms
  • Expanded possibilities for permanent pacemaker implantation
  • Implantation of internal cardiac defibrillators, another option for dangerously fast rhythms
  • Cardioversion

Non-invasive Services

  • Coronary CT angiography (CTA) - a diagnostic tool to evaluate noninvasively for coronary artery disease. It can detect blockages much sooner and with greater accuracy. It looks at the walls of the artery, which is where plaque or blockage first develops
  • Echocardiograms, recording heart function using ultrasound waves, color flow and doppler modalities
  • Electrocardiograms, recording the electrical activity of the heart
  • Holter monitoring, recording the electrical activity of the heart over an extended period, typically 24-48 hours
  • Transesophageal (TEE), providing the doctor with a clear view of the heart from within the esophagus for more complex cardiac conditions
  • Myocardial Perfusion Imaging
  • Signal averaging, analyzing the electrical cycle of the EKG complex in significant rhythm problems
  • Stress test cardiogram, recording the electrical activity of the heart and blood pressure before, during, and after exercise
  • Stress echo, performed with the stress test to provide the most accurate diagnosis possible

Cardiac Rehabilitation

  • Offered in three phases to heart patients, with individuals progressing through the phases as their health improves
  • Includes exercise (monitored as needed) and education. Education topics such as diet, risk factors, and lifestyle changes are covered
