Diagnosing and treating heart conditions requires the expertise of specialty trained cardiologists and top-notch technology. Providence Heart Institute offers it all.
Our team of board-certified cardiologists have extensive experience in all fields of cardiac care, including:
Our doctors, expert dietitians and cardiac rehab staff work closely with patients on lifestyle modifications for cardiac disease prevention and management after a cardiac event or surgery.
Cardiac rhythm disturbances can affect patients in many ways, including rhythms that create the sense of the heart running away, collapse or even sudden death. These can be among the most frightening circumstances a patient and family can confront.
Cardiac electrophysiologists (EP) have the expertise to deal with these problems and provide solutions that may include ablation (cauterizing the source of the problem) or implant devices (pacemakers or defibrillators) to stabilize the heart rhythm. As leaders in the field, we are experts in developing personalized treatment plans for patients.
Cardiac Level 1 Program
When patients with heart attack symptoms arrive at regional hospitals, the Cardiac Level 1 Program ensures they get the fast, quality care they need when minutes matter. Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center partners with more than 20 rural hospitals to ensure treatment of heart attack victims begins promptly and transport arrangements are ready if the patient requires an advanced procedure.
For heart attack patients presenting to Sacred Heart Emergency, the average time from arrival to opening up a blocked artery is less than 60 minutes. The result? Saved lives.
