Who does your heart beat for?

The cardiac experts at Dignity Health want your heart to keep beating strong for your loved ones. Early detection of heart problems means treatment can start earlier, so you'll live healthier longer.

Heart Care You Can Count On

For many individuals, the first sign of heart disease begins with a heart attack. Our complete heart care program begins the second you enter our emergency room, where we quickly assess your condition and proceed with the appropriate cardiac diagnostic services. If intervention is necessary, you’ll immediately go to our cardiac cath lab for angioplasty, where a small balloon is placed and inflated to open blocked heart arteries. The American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association recommends a less than 90 minute door-to-balloon time.

General cardiology comes with the goal of identifying people who are at risk of heart disease, providing care for patients who are suffering from heart disease and helping these individuals maintain a healthy long life.

Conditions that would fall under the category of general cardiology would include things such as heart attacks, high blood pressure, angina, coronary artery disease and valve disease.

The functions of the blood vessels include supplying all organs and tissues of the body with oxygen and nutrients. They include removing waste products, fluid balance, and other functions. Because of all these functions, conditions that affect the vascular system may affect the part(s) of the body supplied by a certain vascular network. Vascular disease involves blood flow, either by blocked or weakened blood vessels, or by damage in the valves found in veins. Our interventional Cardiovascular team offers several treatments for venous and arterial diseases.
